Background of Name

Hubert H. Humphrey had an amazing ability to combine a scathing attention to detail with compassionate listening and astute political action. Those abilities helped him advance some of our nation’s most relevant policies and define ideals of American politics.

In that ethos, Hubert Project aims to enable faculty, instructors, and trainers to foster those traits in public affairs students and current practitioners alike. In today’s fast-paced world of changing technology, people receive information differently than before. Hubert¬†Project provides multimedia learning objects that simulate real-life public issues to enhance students’ competencies. In building those skills, we aim to honor Humphrey’s legacy and develop the next generation of leaders in public affairs.
