Because CIPA is an interdisciplinary program, our Fellows take courses from a wide variety of faculty members across the university.

CIPA Faculty Advisory Board members provide cohesion to the program and coherence in academic advising. They also teach core courses, which serve as the academic foundation of the program. 

Teaching faculty provide supplemental coursework, enhancing the program offerings available to Fellows.

Field faculty members represent colleges, departments, and related disciplines across campus; in  addition to offering policy coursework specific to their particular field of study, these field members also serve as thesis advisors for Fellows.
