The Policy Seminar brings policymakers and leaders in a number of fields to the Keough School to engage students in a range of topics.

Faculty include officials from government and the military; representatives of national and international organizations; business leaders; religious leaders; advocates and activists from nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) and social movements; and journalists and academics with expertise on global issues.

The Policy Seminar is led each week by various Notre Dame and invited faculty in collaboration with Sara Sievers, associate dean for policy and practice, Francis Taylor, Executive Fellow, Keough School Global Policy Initiative, and Maura Policelli, executive director of the Keough School Global Policy Initiative. The Policy Seminar is as a core part of the curriculum for all students.
