This course is specially designed to facilitate a smooth transition for first-year students into university life, while simultaneously providing an introductory exploration of public policy. We will explore various campus resources, covering topics from academic advising, library and research facilities, student wellness, and support services, to extracurricular activities and engagement opportunities. We will also consider a broad overview of public policy, exploring its foundation, processes, and real-world impacts. Students will be encouraged to ponder key policy issues, appreciate the complexity of decision-making processes, and understand the interplay of stakeholders in shaping societal outcomes.
