The ENACT Model

Workshop: ENACT launched with a workshop at Brandeis University in May 2016. Under the leadership of the program’s academic director, ENACT Fellows shared ideas and work on course development. Read about the 2016 ENACT Institute and the 2018 ENACT Institute at Brandeis University.

Courses: In ENACT courses students learn about participating in the legislative and advocacy process at the state level, with a substantial hands-on component in which they engage directly in that process, as in the “Advocacy for Policy Change” course at Brandeis. See the full list of ENACT schools.

Online Network: The ENACT Network is a national in-person and online network of students, faculty, activists and legislators. It is a strategic and information hub for state-level players that enables them to connect with counterparts throughout the country.
