On November 21, 2017, Dr. Ivan Sascha Sheehan – Associate Professor of Public and International Affairs – spoke at The National Press Club in Washington, D.C.

Dr. Sheehan is the Vice Chair of the Board at the American Committee on Human Rights (formerly known as the Iran Policy Committee).

This fall Dr. Sheehan also participated in the NASPAA NEXT Leadership Development Workshop, an invitation only workshop for higher education leaders in public affairs. The meeting focused on strategies for communicating groundbreaking research to public policy officials. Dr. Sheehan also chaired a bipartisan panel discussion featuring elected officials at the annual conference of The William Donald Schaefer Center for Public Policy.
