Welcome to the Powell Network Blog! The Powell Network is made up of current and former Colin Powell Fellows at The City College of New York. The Powell Network Blog is a space for Powell Network members to engage in public debate about issues involving community and economic development, education, international development and global security, health, and the environment. Powell Network members come from a range of disciplines at CCNY, and bring a wide variety of perspectives to the most pressing public issues of the day. Check back regularly for new posts; we encourage comments, feedback and rigorous debate.
