Policy Vision and Mission

Working at the intersection of scientific evidence, governance, and analyses, the Policy SGA translates scholarship to practice and examines the interplay between the two.

In this unique space of collaborative research, education and engagement, experts from non-policy related disciplines will gain insights to the complexity of worldwide issues, organizational dynamics, regulatory policy, and more, and policy experts will gain insights into the science, technology, and analytical strategies that must be incorporated into complex decision making across multiple jurisdictions. Building a capacity for policy research and development that connects STEM disciplines with the social sciences and humanities sets us apart from the "policy school" approach by leveraging our strengths in policy-related theoretical and methodological innovation and sophistication and the deliberate integration of policy considerations throughout the university, so as to advance the human condition in a just and equitable manner.
