International Policy Briefings

MAGP Cohort 5 students briefing the "Secretaries of State"

On Day 3 of their first residency, Cohort 5 students dived right in with policy briefings to “Secretaries of State” Alexander Bick and Sheba Crocker. While they played the part that day, Bick and Crocker have extensive experience in government. Bick served most recently as the Director for Syria at the National Security Council, and Crocker as the Assistant Secretary for International Organization Affairs at the State Department. Their tough questions forced MAGP students to rethink their policy recommendations and consider the challenges that real policymakers face.
