Civic Engagement
The IOP hosts Chicago Treks in partnership with the Harris School's Center for Effective Government. Each trek offers 20 students the chance to dive into a political issue area through meeting with a broad range of public service practitioners.

On this Trek participants will explore: Where are the migrants and refugees arriving from? How are they reaching Chicago? Are they choosing Chicago as their destination? What does it mean to be a sanctuary city? Does the name have political benefits or repercussions? What is the City of Chicago doing to assist new arrivals? Is this enough? What more should be done? Migration is likely to become a long-term reality of life in Chicago. What does the future look like for city government and its partners?

Speakers for this Trek include: Leni Manaa-Hoppenworth, 48th Ward Alderperson and Isaias Solis, Senior Director of Erie Neighborhood House. Additional speakers may be added.
