Cornell Roosevelt Institute Joins UK Student Think Tanks To Tackle Global Policy Issues

The Cornell Roosevelt institute partnered with three other colleges across the U.S. to create the first-ever Global Student Policy Alliance. Hundreds of students interested in public policy will now have the opportunity to share perspectives and pitch viable solutions to important global issues such as racial discrimination, mental health and climate change.

The process for transferring to each college can vary considerably. While all students looking to transfer must fill out the same internal transfer application, which asks applicants for a 600-word essay on why their “academic or career goals have led” them to “pursue an internal transfer,” some colleges have more requirements than others.
