The Nelson Mandela School of Public Policy and Urban Affairs provides programs that enable undergraduate and graduate students to understand major social, political and economic developments in society. These programs will familiarize students with the values associated with positive and effective leadership in a democratic society, and will provide a framework for lifelong personal and professional growth. Students of the school will gain the knowledge and skills they need in order to pursue and excel in graduate education or professional careers.The School's newest program, the Doctor of Philosophy in Public Policy, not only supports the university's historical mission to prepare and train outstanding African-American scholars, professionals and citizens, but explicitly broadens that mission by actively seeking outstanding graduate students of other races.
