Congressional Simulation

Facilitated by Joshua C. Huder, Senior Fellow

The Government Affairs Institute at Georgetown University

Acting as members of Congress, participants must vote on multiple bills addressing a variety of issues and dilemmas. Operating in fast-paced, low-information environments, they must make smart choices, taking into account electability in their home districts. This will be a real world look at the decisions members face on a day-to-day basis on Capitol Hill.

Joshua C. Huder, Ph.D., is a senior fellow at The Government Affairs Institute (GAI) at Georgetown University. Prior to joining GAI, Huder worked on Capitol Hill as an American Political Science Association (APSA) Congressional Fellow. He is currently writing a book on the history of congressional procedure and politics since 1879. He received a Ph.D. in political science from the University of Florida and is a graduate of Rutgers University.

Open to current Rutgers graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty only.
