For the Community

Main Content

The Paul Simon Public Policy Institute is committed to providing new and engaging opportunities for students, alumni, and community members! We do this by offering free events that are open to the community, hosting conferences on policy issues facing the community and state level, along with providing free access to our research. You can take advantage of these opportunities to enrich your knowledge of public policy issues.

We look forward to welcoming you to one of our upcoming events. Our schedule of upcoming events is updated regularly. You can also receive email notifications for upcoming events by signing up today.
