We founded Kroeger Policy Review in August 2020 in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. It was a tumultuous time filled with uncertainty. Many of our peers had co-op and internship positions cancelled, those in the hospitality and tourism sectors were laid off, and almost all of us were relying on some form of government support through programs like CERB, CESB, and EI. It was during this time that we realized how few of our peers and families understood how impactful government action can be on our lives, or how they're even made.
We started KPR to bridge this gap by creating public policy content that is informative and accessible to everyone.
Our Mission & Values
Through KPR we want to create public policy content that is engaging, informative, and accessible to everyone, but we also want to develop a unique environment to train, guide, and develop our team members to become industry-ready public policy practitioners, communicators, and content creators.
Our team is also focused on equity, diversity, and inclusivity and aim to create an environment and a culture that fosters these values while also remaining aware that the real implementation of these values will at times require direct action and change.
KPR also recognizes that the land on which Carleton University is based is the traditional, unceded territories of the Algonquin nation.
Kroeger Policy Review would like to thank the early and strong support it received from Dr. Lisa Mills, Dr. Neil Gerlach and the administrations of the Bachelor of Public Affairs and Policy Management and the Bachelor of Global and International Studies programs, respectively.
Kroeger Policy Review would also like to thank Dr. Mary Francoli and the Arthur Kroeger College of Public Affairs for their support in starting and developing KPR.
