+Policy Network

The +Policy Network evolved from a Destination Areas 2.0 initiative to integrate natural strengths at the university with novel and innovative strategies to solve local, regional and global problems.

The +Policy Network serves as a dynamic space for faculty and students developing novel approaches to policy development, implementation, and analysis to address complex decisions across multiple settings. 

Working at the intersection of scientific evidence, governance, and analyses, +Policy Network affiliates translate scholarship to practice and examine the interplay between the two.

The research and scholarship and curriculum development efforts of the +Policy Network are guided by a Stakeholder Committee and its working committees.  The Institute for Society, Culture, and Environment (ISCE) is the administrative home of the +Policy Network.
