The Public Policy Lab (PPL) is an intellectual home for researchers who study public policies and the social processes relevant to their development and consequences. Housed in the College of Liberal Arts, the nonpartisan lab provides an interdisciplinary forum for discussion of contemporary policy issues, research support for faculty and student scholarship, and a mechanism to disseminate participants’ research findings.
PPL’s colloquia series, conferences, fellowships and study groups bring together the varied perspectives of scholars from a range of disciplines. Through rigorous research, these scholars address critical policy challenges at the local, state and national levels.
We are daring, ambitious, creative thinkers. Simultaneously civic-minded and globally conscious, our students and faculty are engaged in the community and care about our world.
From lectures to film screenings to networking opportunities with some of the region's biggest employers, events at the College of Liberal Arts are designed to support your life's work.
