Price Governance Salons host faculty to explore issues relating to effective governance and public management. It is a unique opportunity for our students and faculty to meet and engage with top researchers in the field and encourage participation between speakers and audience in order to foster discussion and collaboration. Harkening back to the origins of the “salon,” the goal of these talks is to create a space for our students and faculty to exchange ideas.
