The Master of Public Policy and Global Affairs section highlights how our school responded to the pandemic, with faculty, staff, and students drawing upon their creativity and perseverance to implement and adapt to new teaching strategies and ways of connecting and engaging with the policy world.

SPPGA strives to exchange knowledge, raise awareness of pressing issues, and foster an inclusive space for interdisciplinary, multi-stakeholder dialogue among students, academics, government, industry, non-profits, and community. Under Convening, Learning & Engagement, we share examples of high profile speaker series, program activities, and the efforts of students, faculty, and staff to nurture an accessible, inclusive, equitable, and respectful environment at SPPGA.

This section also outlines the major achievements and activities of our partners, which include the Institute of Asian Research (IAR) and its five research centres on Asia, the Liu Institute for Global Issues (Liu), the Centre for the Study of Democratic Institutions (CSDI), and the Office of Regional and International Community Engagement (ORICE).
