Connor Herbert graduated in the spring of 2022 with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and International Affairs. He came to UC from Nebraska as a Presidential Cincinnatus Scholar and an Arts and Sciences Scholar. During his college career he participated in a myriad of activities on campus, including becoming a research fellow with the Ronald E. McNair Scholars program, planning the development of an ambassador program designed to encourage student involvement on campus, and mentoring students involved in Campus YMCA, an organization he led for four years.
He had the privilege of working with the American Bar Foundation the summer of his junior year as a Summer Undergraduate Research Fellow and at the end of his senior spring semester he led a short research project funded by the University to do a study of the papers of John Kenneth Galbraith, a preeminent economist from the mid-20th century.
Connor is currently taking a gap year working at a bike shop in his hometown of Lincoln, Nebraska and doing bike advocacy work with the League of American Bicyclists as a Federal Policy Fellow. He plans to pursue a PhD/JD to teach and study the international law and international relations of outer space.
