Approachable Expertise

 

Research



 

 

The faculty of the Trachtenberg School regularly provide expertise that informs the policy debates that rage in Washington, D.C., and across the country. They are called upon by members of the media, respected think tanks and government officials to share knowledge and research.

Their resumes and their research are impressive. But they are more than academics. They are the backbone of the welcoming Trachtenberg School community. Faculty love teaching and finding time to help students think through concepts from class, talk about career paths and next steps and getting to know Washington, D.C.
