Join us for SPA JumpStart 2020

The School of Public Affairs (SPA) will host SPA Jumpstart that will offer a robust agenda spanning two days on the beautiful American University (AU) campus. The agenda will be designed to cater to all of SPA's traditional, master's degrees and will "JumpStart" new students' academic, professional and social engagement in graduate student life. The agenda will offer career development panels and workshops, an academic component, campus resource fair, housing bus tour, current student/alumni panel as well as a special, culminating social reception. SPA's Jumpstart offers Fall 2020 enrolled master's students an opportunity to further engage with: SPA faculty, staff, and current as well as incoming students; campus and community resources; and their new Washington, D.C. home. The experience is sure to jumpstart the incoming cohort's pursuit of a profession of purpose!
