The McCourt Student Association (MSA) serves as the student government at the McCourt School of Public Policy. MSA works to facilitate communication and collaboration among students, administrators, and faculty as well as to enhance the academic, social, and professional experiences of McCourt students.
Throughout the year, MSA oversees all student organizations and promotes ingenuity and engagement by funding student-driven initiatives that extend graduate learning beyond the classroom. MSA-sponsored programming ranges from skills workshops, volunteering opportunities both on and off campus, networking opportunities with alumni, and the annual State of McCourt town hall. MSA also builds community at McCourt by hosting social and diversity events including an international potluck and cultural festival, trivia nights, election watch parties, and the annual end-of-year student gala and graduation dinner. To ensure that student feedback is incorporated into every aspect of academic and student life, MSA regularly collects feedback from McCourt students through surveys and open forums and meets with McCourt administrators to guarantee the best possible experience for all students.
