Welcome from Andrew Young
I am very excited about what is going on at the Andrew Young School and at Georgia State University. Our doors are open to hard working students who want to be the leaders of tomorrow. There is nothing elitist or conventional about us. About one-fifth of our graduate students come from developing countries, 59 percent of our students are women, and nearly one-half are African Americans. We love over-achievers here at the Andrew Young School of Policy Studies, and we love students who have the improvement of policy as a goal. Every time we graduate a young person from a developing country, and send them back home, I feel like we have just leveled the playing field a little more.
Each time I teach a class, or sit in a seminar, I am so impressed with the students I meet and with what they have to say. And every time I hear about a training or technical assistance project in Africa, Asia or Latin America, I feel good about the value we are adding. When you read through our web site, I hope you will sense the same excitement that I feel about the School. If you do, come see us and maybe I’ll run into you in the hallway.
