GSPM Fellows

In addition to our full-time and adjunct faculty, GSPM students have the opportunity to learn from our fellows, leaders in politics and advocacy chosen by the school to serve 18-month terms. During their tenure, fellows contribute to the school as adjunct professors, guest lecturers, panel speakers, and case study contributors.
