Who are we talking about when we talk about the vibrant Fels Institute of Government community?

The Fels community is enriched by our incredible faculty, who are dedicated not only to our students but to making an impact on public life through inclusive and innovative work. Our remarkable alumni, who serve in a broad range of positions in city, state, and federal agencies, elected offices, nonprofit organizations, and private firms, are set apart by their ability to get things done across the nation and around the world. Our community even includes the city of Philadelphia—which serves as an authentic and inspiring civic laboratory for Fels students—and the cities and organizations beyond where our admissions partners, invited speakers, alumni, and other public leaders are committed to making a difference. And at the heart of Fels are our students, whose dedication and ambition form tight-knit cohorts and lasting connections year after year.

The Fels experience is defined by our passionate, dedicated community. Meet the people at Fels who are dedicated to making a difference.
