Adam Clark was born in Cincinnati, Ohio and has lived in the area all his life. He went to Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy for high school and he chose to come to Xavier for the Service Fellowship program. His sophomore year he joined the Philosophy, Politics, and the Public Honors Program and he is now a senior triple-majoring in the Philosophy, Politics, and the Public Honors Program, History, and Political Science. He has enjoyed studying a wide range of topics at Xavier, but his intellectual interests mainly center around public policy, developmental economics, international development, international relations, and human rights. The Service Fellowship has awarded Adam the opportunity to intern at a range of non-profits and governmental entities including the Ohio Justice and Police Center, the Strive Partnership, the Cincinnati Police Department, The Greater Cincinnati Coalition for the Homeless, and the Office of Cincinnati City Councilwoman Laure Quinlivan. Adam is an avid sports fan who cheers relentlessly for the Muskies, but watches more NBA than college basketball. Adam enjoys watching movies and documentaries, trying different kinds of foods, and travelling to other countries and observing their cultures. He has travelled through most of Western Europe and aims to begin exploring other regions such as East Asia and Latin America. Adam will be attending the University of Cincinnati College of Law in the fall and hopes to develop a career in public interest law.
Adam is studying the impacts of neoliberal economic policies on the responsiveness of the Costa Rican government, the quality of life of the citizens, and the contrasts between public and private industries in Costa Rica.
