The Goldman School of Public Policy offers a quantitatively rigorous program partnered with a collaborative community of diverse folks. I couldn't be happier with my decision to attend the Goldman School.

The Goldman School is absolutely the finest Public Policy program I could be involved in. The faculty and staff have reached out to offer assistance and welcome me as a member of the Goldman family. I will value this experience and education forever.

Enrolling as a student at The Goldman School of Public Policy is one of the best decisions I have made. The education I am getting takes second place to none. I will have a debt of gratitude to all of the faculty and staff at Goldman School forever.

I am a Ph.D. Student at Goldman School of Public Policy, U.C. Berkeley. I could not be in a better place, for me, at this stage of my life. The support and help I receive from faculty and staff is more than I could ever have hoped for. I have access to other schools at Berkeley. I am taking classes at Boalt Hall, Berkeley Law, Haas School of Business, and will continue to take advantage of those opportunities. I am a Criminal Justice major and have found my program to have profound interest in my studies. Thank you GSPP.
