The program is supported by two adjuncts--Tom Krampitz in Fort Worth and Austin and Kerry Kinirons in Washington, D.C. They guide students through a policy-based seminar and bring in the biggest names in local, state and federal policymaking to engage students in a small class setting on current issues.
