DIPP offers support like a mentorship program with graduate students at Berkeley’s Goldman School of Public Policy, externship opportunities to shadow public policy professionals, admissions panels for MPP programs, faculty and student mixers, networking with policy professionals, and more.

This organization is the first of its kind for Berkeley undergraduates because there is a widespread lack of support for students of color at the undergraduate level in this field.
