This year marks the 20th Anniversary of the McCourt School Policy Conference. On Friday, February 28, 2014, from 10 a.m. – 5:30 p.m., McCourt students will bring together distinguished academics and policymakers to engage in a comprehensive dialogue on U.S. Immigration Reform in the U.S. Capitol Building.

Organized by McCourt graduate students, this day-long conference will examine the economic, international, and political perspectives and consequences of immigration reform. Panelists include leading immigration advocates, international dignitaries, and economic policy experts.

“The McCourt School Policy Conference is an unparalleled opportunity for our students to lead the discourse on the most pressing policy issues in our nation’s capital,” said McCourt School Dean Edward Montgomery. “From the State of the Union Address to debates on the congressional floor, there is no scarcity of opinion about U.S. Immigration Reform. The topic is timely and relevant and I look forward to a lively discussion.”

“On behalf of the Executive Committee, I am honored and excited to invite you to attend the 2014 McCourt School Policy Conference to discussion US Immigration Reform,” said 2014 Conference Chair Ian Cronin. “We are especially excited to bring together reform advocates across the political spectrum, economic experts with over 40 years of academic and implementation experience, and the Ambassadors to the United States from Mexico, El Salvador, and the Philippines.”
