Student Luncheons & Receptions

The Harkin Institute hosts four student lunches or receptions each semester. These events are small, intimate hour-long opportunities for students to visit with an accomplished government, nonprofit, journalism, political or public policy leader. The guests of honor informally discuss their career, share information, answer questions, provide advice, and get to know the students.  All events are held at The Harkin Institute with food provided and a business casual dress code.
