For over 30 years, the Ford School has hosted a PPIA (Public Policy and International Affairs) Junior Summer Institute for college undergraduates interested in pursuing graduate school for public policy or foreign affairs. This year, we're proud to host a cohort of 18 aspiring public servants. On Tuesday, July 19, Dean Susan M. Collins, a member of the board of directors for the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago (having previously served on the board of the Detroit Branch), had the privilege of leading them on a visit to the Detroit Branch of the Chicago Fed.
