The Consortium on Media Policy Studies (COMPASS)

The Consortium on Media Policy Studies (COMPASS)

For more than a decade, a consortium of Communication doctoral programs has sponsored a select group of Ph.D. students to spend a summer in Washington, D.C. These COMPASS Summer Fellows have a front row seat to learn about U.S. federal policymaking as they make their own contributions to the policy process through their research and writing. In this video, hear from students who have gone through the program, as well as the faculty who direct it.

The program is organized by the Media, Inequality, & Change Center at the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania.
