The Baker Institute Student Forum hosted its fifth annual undergraduate public policy conference on April 6-7, 2018. This year, Rice undergraduate students were invited to submit a policy proposal on how to best address existing problems or new opportunities in the U.S. foreign policy in the Western Hemisphere. Finalists presented their policy papers to a panel of experts at the Baker Institute. The top three presenters were awarded cash prizes, and their papers will be published in the Rice Journal of Public Policy, an undergraduate research publication produced through the Baker Institute.
Launched in September 2013, this annual competition allows undergraduates to present policy solutions for the nation’s pressing issues and interact with policy experts and representatives from the corporate, medical, academic, nonprofit and government sectors.
