Honors Students Represented Among Four to Attend Prestigious Public Policy and International Affairs Institutes

Four Syracuse University students have been selected to participate in the highly competitive Public Policy and International Affairs (PPIA) junior summer institutes. PPIA is a summer program hosted by five institutions across the country with strong public policy programs. It promotes the inclusion of underrepresented groups in public service and advances their leadership roles throughout civic institutions. The program is designed to encourage participants to apply to graduate school in public policy, public administration, international affairs or a related field.

The four, all rising seniors, are Mamoudou Camara, a policy studies and political science major in the College of Arts and Sciences and the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs; Tajanae Harris, an anthropology major in the College of Arts and Sciences and the Maxwell School and a member of the Renée Crown University Honors Program; John Jankovic, a political science  and international relations major in the College of Arts and Sciences and the Maxwell School; and Tyra Jean, a sociology (pre-physician assistant track) major in the College of Arts and Sciences and the Maxwell School  and a member of the Renée Crown University Honors Program.

Camara, Harris and Jankovic will attend the PPIA institute at Carnegie Mellon University; Jean will attend the PPIA institute at the University of California at Berkeley.
