Congress to Campus
Congress to Campus provides college students with a unique civic education by engaging them in honest dialogue with bipartisan teams of former members of Congress, congressional staff, and American diplomats. Whether sessions take place in-person on campus, or in a virtual format, these dialogues bring today’s issues to the forefront and showcase the benefits of healthy partisanship and civility within disagreement.
Congress to Campus dialogues also provide students with unparalleled insight into careers in public service, including how to run for political office, managing work/life balance on Capitol Hill, and the thrill of debating legislation on the U.S. House or U.S. Senate floor. Program participants consistently say these sessions gave them a newfound appreciation for the dignity and excitement of public service.

Since 1996, the Stennis Center for Public Service has partnered with FMC to assist in managing the program.
