Top Scholar selected to attend prestigious Harvard conference

UTSA sociology major Josh Peck ’22 has been selected one of 76 students nationally to attend the Harvard Public Policy Leadership Conference at the John F. Kennedy School of Government. Over 700 students nationwide applied for the conference, which will take place in this month.

The conference is for first- and second-year undergraduate students who are passionate about public service and being a strong voice in their community. Students attending the conference demonstrate their involvement in areas such as student leadership, volunteering in the community or engaging in activism.

The conference introduces students to the study of public policy on the graduate level as well as orient them toward career opportunities in areas such as nongovernmental organizations, international institutions and social enterprises.

Kristi Meyer, director of the Top Scholar Program, noted how Peck will benefit by attending the conference: “Josh is a constant achiever with an exceptional aptitude, budding leadership skills and a passion for social justice, making him an excellent fit for this program. I know Josh will represent UTSA well at this conference and am excited to see the new skills and increased network he will bring back from this experience.”
