Our unique partnerships provide participants with critical insights from education, media, and policy experts.
We draw on the expertise of our many partner institutions to provide guest speakers, demonstrations, and simulations designed to provide unique first-hand learning experiences for students and educators.
Utilizing partnership workshops, seminars, and on-site study visits, teachers gain valuable tools and resources to bring back to the classroom as well as opportunities for academic and professional development.
I’m all pumped up from the program! …
I plan to speak to everyone about the experience for students here. The curricular component has been rigorous and productive.
Close Up made me realize how SIGNIFICANT my thoughts and views are…
Although everyone will not always agree, everyone has a voice and needs to be heard.
Close Up brought me CLOSER to politics…
the entire notion no longer seemed obscure. I became very involved in politics on the local and national level.
Close Up was the GREATEST experience of my life!..
It has inspired me to become a political leader in this great country. I have not only gained an even greater expansion of knowledge in the area of politics, but I have also gained lifelong friends.
