On Friday, May 10, the Transportation Management and Policy (TMP) colloquium and practicum students presented the results of their group projects to interested staff and faculty, as well as other students. CFIRE Executive Director Teresa Adams also presented the 2013 Muzi Fellowship.

About the TMP Colloquium

Students in the Transportation Management and Policy (TMP) program take two one-credit colloquium modules as part of the TMP curriculum. These colloquia provide students with the opportunity to discuss transportation issues with leaders in the field. Each semester, the topic and guest speakers vary. Students also work in small groups on projects related to the topic at hand. The topic for the Spring 2013 colloquium focused on Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker’s decision to turn down federal funding for high-speed rail.

This semester, students worked in two groups. One group presented arguments in favor of Governor Walker’s decision and one group presented arguments opposed to this decision. You can also view the recorded version of these presentations and the subsequent Q&A session.
