Staff

The Rose Institute stresses a high level of interaction between students and faculty. In their research on state and local government, students and faculty work side by side. Students receive guidance and instruction from professors, fellows and research associates experienced in the operations of both the public and private sectors. While every student has experience working with faculty members and senior staff on an individual basis, the Rose Institute student staff is overseen by senior student managers.
