After graduating in 2014, Adam Oriel Cohen became a Fellow in Public Affairs at CORO which is a highly selective, full-time, nine month, graduate-level experiential leadership training program that prepares diverse, talented and committed individuals for effective and ethical leadership in the public affairs arena. Adam's thesis was a comprehensive comparative investigation of the history and effectiveness of remedial programs in the CUNY and the California State University systems. As an undergraduate Adam was a Research Apprentice to Professor David Kirp at the Goldman School of Public Policy.
He also worked with Olive Tree Initiative--a student run organization that promotes conflict analysis and resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict through experiential education. In the future, Adam plans on pursuing a J.D./M.P.P and envisions himself reshaping education policy in California and ultimately the U.S.
