McLaughlin’s Public Policy Programme

The Public Policy Programme brings together students, faculty, staff, and informed outsiders to discuss a variety of policy subjects of interest. Symposia, Panel Discussions, Special Guest Lectures and Seminars are held each term in both the Junior and Senior Common Rooms. You will find that these offerings will supplement your credit courses. Your suggestions are invited. Topics often covered include:

  • The Ontario Political Economy
  • The Canadian Political Economy
  • Issues in Canadian Public Policy
  • International Political Questions
  • Topics in Public Administration
As part of the Public Policy Programme the College co-operates with a variety of University student clubs and faculty associations active in the field of Public Policy such as the Research Programme in International and Strategic Studies, the Centre for Refugee Studies and the Public Policy and Administration Program in Political Science. These student clubs and faculty organizations provide special expertise to students and others. Further information about our Public Policy Programme may be obtained through the Master or the College’s Administrative Assistant.
