Students Embark on Intensive Study Trip to DC

Sunday, March 6, 2016 to Thursday, March 10, 2016

A group of students recently embarked on a Washington, DC intensive study led by SCMSS Research Professor Thoman Mullikin.  The intensive study introduced students to the inner working of the legislative, executive, and judicial branches of government through meetings with key officials in our nation’s capital. This experiential learning environment helped the students develop a firsthand understanding of the application of sound science in complex statutory, legal, and regulatory matters. Each meeting and its venue was selected in order to allow an introduction and appreciation for real world influences and processes by which federal laws and regulations are developed.
