Sam Curtis

BSILR, '23
High Road Fellowships - Buffalo, NY
Buffalo Center For Arts and Technology

Work Highlight: 

Developed a proposal for BCAT program expansion. 


Summer Takeaway: 

Throughout the High Road, I have learned about the various ways social and political institutions perpetuate inequality and the ways we can take action to reduce these barriers. Out of the topics we have covered, I would like to learn more about the inequalities involved in the criminal justice system and the movement in shifting towards community-led policing. The High Road has inspired me through showing how accessible it is to take action to address social inequalities. I had frequently heard the concept of advocating for social change referenced but had little idea of how I could take meaningful action on my own terms.


Career Path: 

I hope to attend law school and ultimately work for the government to shape policy related to economic regulation and infrastructure.


Favorite Memory: 

The highlight of my time in the High Road program was being able to hear from the variety of insightful speakers attending the Friday program sessions each week.
