    Advancing Evidence-Based Social Policies through Intergovernmental Data Sharing Partnerships

    Professor Dennis CulhaneApril 6

    This event has been rescheduled for Friday, April 6.

    There is increasingly broad recognition that policymaking can be done more effectively when decisions regarding support for public programs are made strategically, based on the rigorous analysis of evidence. In several key areas of social policy, including housing and education, such evidence-based policymaking at the federal level needs to rely on data collected and evaluated at the state and local levels. This seminar will help staffers better understand how the state and local evidence base is gathered and how that base can inform their own work.

    Professor Robert InmanApril 20
    The Trump Administration’s $1.5 billion infrastructure plan raises important questions as to how future infrastructure projects should be funded and managed. This seminar will consider the options for public vs. private financing, including a discussion of the strengths and limitations of public-private partnerships and infrastructure banks. It also will examine the roles that federal, state, and local governments should have with respect to efficient project management.infrastructure|right
