The Washington Campus integrates site visits throughout the variety of our programs. These site visits enable participants to interact directly with policy makers and also help participants better understand, first-hand, the context in which public policy is made. In addition to government sites, Campus programs also incorporate historic and important Washington, D.C., locations such as national embassies, think tanks, industry and trade associations, and NGOs.
