Students and Educators

We want to inspire students to value fact-finding, good governance, and bipartisan cooperation as well as to sharpen their investigative skills and their ability to engage in public policy debates with civility.  

How we involve students

We offer a variety of educational opportunities for Wayne Law students, high school students, and educators interested in oversight and good governance.

Portraits in Oversight

Scholars, educators, the public, and even legislators are not always sure what is meant by the term “oversight.” To help explain, we’ve compiled short portraits of important congressional oversight investigations as well as Members of Congress who set key oversight precedents or otherwise left their mark on the oversight world.  Join us for a quick history walk!

People-Centered Oversight
