Houston Centered Policy Challenge

The Houston Centered Policy Challenge (HCPC) is an annual policy competition that enables Rice students to learn about and respond to a policy issue facing Houston leaders and residents.  As a Learn level CCL program, HCPC introduces students from a variety of backgrounds and perspectives to civic leadership through an engaged, community-focused approach to advocacy and public policy. Participants work together in teams, learn about the policy issue through independent research and interaction with campus and community experts, and present creative, community-focused policy solutions to a panel of city and community leaders. 

The 2019-20 policy challenge is CRIMINAL JUSTICE in the greater Houston area.

More information about about the upcoming Houston Centered Policy Challenge will be available in Fall of 2019.
