Public Policy Research

Research is a critical component of the Department of Public Policy’s mission, linking education with public service.

Research activities of faculty and our research centers are supported by federal agencies, private foundations and state and local governments.

Students have the opportunity, and are in fact encouraged, to work with faculty members on research projects.
