Pearson post from Rebecca Rosen

We’ve received some questions from students lately asking for more information about The Pearson Institute for the Study and Resolution of Global Conflicts.  Harris is in the process of launching a new website with additional details on Pearson, but Rebecca Rosen, Director of Operations, provided the details below in order to give our students some additional insight. 

The Pearson Fellows program

The Pearson Fellows program is open to Master of Public Policy students. Fellows are selected based on a student’s leadership, academic aptitude, and dedication to global conflict resolution through demonstrated experience and/or coursework. Evaluation also includes a student’s grade point average and GRE score, which may be supplemented by fieldwork directly related to conflict resolution. Potential Fellows can declare their interest during the application process found here. Please note you must first be admitted to the MPP program.

As a Pearson Fellow, the Institute will provide mentoring opportunities for you to work and meet with academic leaders at the Harris School of Public Policy, the University, and beyond. There will be intimate discussions with key public policy leaders in the diplomatic, military, humanitarian, and political communities. At Harris, you will have the opportunity to take courses taught by The Pearson Institute faculty on the study of peace and conflict and the political economy of development that demonstrate our data-driven philosophy.  

In addition, The Pearson Institute also hosts series of public events that we hope you will attend. Just this week, The Pearson Institute announced they will host Sergio Jaramillo, the Colombian High Commissioner for Peace, on Monday, April 24th at the University of Chicago. This event is open to the public and for those of you who may not be able to make it to Chicago, it will be live webcast as well. For more information and to register for this event please visit this page.
