The study of policy and civic engagement has been at the forefront of the mind of Public Policy Chair Anne Douds since her days as a trial attorney and policy consultant, as she witnessed firsthand the effects of policy-making and the importance of civil rights litigation. Now working as an educator, she enables dialogue around change makers and the policy behind their actions, including in her current book project with Gettysburg College student co-authors.
