The School of Public Policy prepares students to be ethical agents of change who can use evidence-based analysis and cultural competence to inform policy and to lead organizations that are tackling the world’s most challenging problems. Relying on innovative analytic techniques from across the social science disciplines, our faculty are leaders in the intellectual debate on policy formation, implementation, and analysis, advance scholarship on democratic governance and accountability, and contribute translational research that informs policy and promotes sound decisions.


We value integrity, discovery, excellence, inclusion, equity and public service.
