A New Home for Public Policy | UMD


– Ask not what your
country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country. (cheering)
(upbeat music) – [Woman] What role should governments, non-profits and businesses play in addressing social
and economic challenges? – [Man] How do we transform
our societies to avoid the worst effects of climate change? – [Woman] Are we ready for a world where decisions are made by
machines, and not humans? – The University of Maryland
School of Public Policy pride ourselves on developing students who can solve problems that are in the interests
of the public good. (fast-paced music) This building is an exciting
development on this campus, because it will provide space for the best and brightest students who will be tomorrow’s leaders. – The new SBP building is
going to create students who are ready to be change-makers, that understand class
issues and race issues, and understand what makes the most sense and what’s logical
versus what’s emotional, and I love that. – Some of the rooms are configured to do different kinds of policy
simulations, for example, like what you might have at the UN. And I just love that
opportunity for students to get a sense or a taste
of what a future career in policy can look like. – I’m particularly excited
about this building, because it will serve as a
connection to the outside world, where presidents, governors, leaders, come to engage with our
students and our faculty, to help solve the problems of the day. – Designed to affect their
attitudes towards public policy. – The new building is a home, being able to go to a space
that is uniquely our own is going to be really great. – I just love that the
new building would just be this great new convening
space for students to engage in more experiential
and hands-on learning because once they graduate, they’re gonna be thrown into
real-world environments. – You know that it’s possible
to do well and do good. – This building embodies
the spirit of democracy because it will be home to all those who are committed to
serving the public good and who go out and do good in the world
