The Nancy A. Humphreys Institute for Political Social Work at UConn will hold its 19th Annual Campaign School on Friday, April 10 and Saturday April 11, 2015 from 9am to 5pm. The Campaign School is a two-day workshop that teaches social workers, advocates, service providers and community members about the inner workings of political campaigns. Attendees leave with a solid understanding of how to run a successful campaign as well as strategies for political action. This is an opportunity to gain knowledge, skills and confidence for those interested in social action, working or volunteering on campaigns and/or running for public office! 12 CEC Credits Available.

Learn from Kate Coyne-McCoy, an experienced political campaign trainer of more than 7,000 candidates and leader of hundreds of successful campaigns. Workshop leaders for day two include well-known political social workers (legislators, elected officials, leaders and policy makers).

“Attending the Campaign School last year was a truly transformational experience for me. Walking into the room, I had no interest in running for political office–nor did I have the confidence to even begin thinking about running for elected office. At the end of the two-day training, however, I not only had the skills and resources to run a successful campaign, but I also had the undeniable ambition to hold elected office in the near future.” Jenna Cruite, MSW
