“The Riddell Program equips students with the skills to be effective in the world of politics. This program allows students to explore emerging fields within politics and better understand how they can leave a positive impact on the world. By taking a multi-partisan approach, students have the opportunity to learn from each other and from highly-respected professors. Through the practicum I was able to explore a field of politics that I was always interested in but never thought I would have a chance to work in.” – Daniel Perry
