Feedback form is now closed.
Many CUMU member institutions (roughly 60%) have centers that focus on public policy in some shape or form. Some are focused on public policy generally, some are focused on a specific type of policy, some focus on civic engagement through policy matters, others do applied policy research, etc. In other words, there are a lot of institutions who have centers like this, but many others do not. Conference attendees may be interested in forming one on their campus. This panel brings together representatives from member institutions who have started policy centers to discuss different forms and types of engagement that are possible through these centers. In addition, panel participants represent different types of policy centers as well as policy centers that are at different stages of a center’s lifespan – both well-established centers and newly created centers. Lessons learned through the creation of centers as well as keeping a center going will be helpful to those who are interested in starting a policy-focused center on their campus.
