April 14 was in many ways the culmination of everything that graduating students in MSU’s Master of Public Policy program have learned and worked on over the last two years. At the Capstone Research Forum, held in MSU’s Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum, MPP second-year students showed off posters highlighting key findings from their capstone research projects, which addressed a diverse range of topics, from pensions in rural China to municipal finance in Michigan.
If you couldn’t make it to the forum—or if you did, and want to revisit some of the research presented—here’s your chance to see our students’ excellent posters. Click on the titles below to view full-sized PDF files of the posters.
