Adam Oriel Cohen - Education and Public Policy
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. In 2017 Adam began the study of law at UCLA.
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.
