Ford+SPPG began in 2010 as a symposium involving the University of Toronto‘s School of Public Policy and Governance (SPPG) and the University of Michigan‘s Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy (the Ford School). Conference locations alternate between the two schools, with SPPG hosting in even-numbered years and the Ford School hosting in odd-numbered years.
When available, we have posted information about our distinguished speakers and slide decks from our student participants. Click on a year below for more information about past Ford + SPPG conferences.
