2. The Urban Public Policy Fellowship (UPPF) program, a new program designed to expose historically underrepresented minority undergraduate students at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) to key public policy issues.

4. UPPF Fellows attended weekly seminars throughout the spring semester. Seminars included policy issues, project management, research, government issues and education budget information.
