UCLA LUSKIN IS GOING (BACK) TO CITY HALL!
We’re excited to announce that after a hiatus due to COVID-19, the UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs will resume its annual Luskin School of Public Affairs Day at Los Angeles City Hall! Each year, a City Hall official has hosted fifteen to eighteen Luskin graduate students to study an urban social policy issue important to Los Angeles. This year, our host will be Councilmember Nithya Raman and the topic will be Homelessness Governance Reform — Service-Led Models, Building More Housing, Better County-City Collaboration.
On the day of the event, selected graduate students will attend a morning session where they will receive an overview of the issue before embarking on a series of interviews with political and civic leaders; government and nonprofit agencies; and community leaders. At the noon-time luncheon, students will report on their initial findings in an interactive debrief session. Luncheon guests include Luskin Leadership; elected City and County officials and their staff; Luskin alumni, and the students’ interviewees. Afterwards, the graduate student participants (with guidance from faculty advisor, Mike Lens) will collectively write one short memo (3-5 pages) to Councilmember Raman with their recommendations.
