I to the Master of Public Policy Program
feel delighted to recommend Ms Urmi Ramchandani to the Master of Public Policy Program
at George Washington University. I have known Urmi for about four years now,
and have taught her the course of Public Administration and Governance for four
semesters out of those years, where she secured good grades with first
division. I have had the pleasure to mentor her for her dissertation where she
comprehensively conducted the case studies of primary schools to evaluate the
implementation status of Right to Education Act. Urmi distinguished herself
when she submitted an exceptionally well-researched thesis demonstrating her
analytic frame of mind and a knack for writing ability. Her written work is
both clear and concise.
on my experiences with Urmi, I can say without a doubt that she is one of the
most meticulous, self-motivated and dedicated students I have taught. I have
seen Urmi making profound contributions both in and out of the classroom. She
has demonstrated strong leadership activities by leading classroom group
projects. As a core team member of a university club, Society for Public Policy
and Governance, she organized events like iPolicy, expert guest lectures and
debates on contemporary policy issues. She took the initiative to conduct Mock
Parliament Session encouraging number of participants to learn about country’s
parliamentary structure and impressed the staff and management at the university
level. She has a distinct asset in establishing cordial relations with staff,
students and community. She has been actively associated with national and
international conferences on disciplinary and multi-disciplinary level. Urmi
has that positive attitude and belief that she can always improve, which is
rare in many students.
continues to impress me with the current stage of her career. Her strategic
thinking, intellectual creativity, endless curiosity and her performance in my
classes lead me to believe that there will be no limit to her growth and
achievements. Her academic and professional accomplishments, and most
importantly her commitment to public service suggest that she would greatly
benefit from an advanced graduate course in Public Policy and will be a unique
addition to George Washington University and the student community there.
do not feel hesitate to contact me for any further information.
