Revision as of 21:37, 28 September 2015

The purpose of this page is to list policies available for adoption by students as part of the Student Learning Module. This page should be reviewed in conjunction with the Student Assignment Instructions.

Selecting a Policy. Below is a list of pre-generated policies anticipated for inclusion on Policy Atlas that may be selected as part of the assignment. Each policy can only be completed for the assignment by one student--once it’s taken, it’s yours for the assignment. Policies are reserved on a first-come, first-serve basis by emailing both your professor and PolicyAtlas at policyatlas_exec@googlegroups.com. We will then confirm that the policy you requested is yours and remove it from the list of available policies.

If you would like to cover an alternative policy concept that is within the policy area but is not listed, please email PolicyAtlas for feedback before beginning the assignment. For more info on how policies are selected and named, you can check out the FAQ and the list of Policy Types.
