Institute of Politics

The new, nonpartisan Institute of Politics encourages and assists UChicago students to explore careers in public and social service and provides extracurricular opportunities in politics and policymaking.

Led by political strategist and UChicago alumnus David Axelrod, AB'76, the Institute offers programs including: the hosting of political and policy practitioners as visiting fellows; the securing and funding of exciting and rewarding political, policy and public interest internships; and offering a continuous series of public speakers discussing current events and political life.
