Our Conference Theme Emphasizes the Need to Use Research and Evidence at Every Stage of the Policy Process | APPAM Leadership Blog Series

For me, fall is a refreshing season of new beginnings. Our member universities are back in full swing, students are launching into their research for the academic year, and the fall conference is just around the corner. I am proud of our conference theme this year, Evidence for Action: Encouraging Innovation and Improvement. The programming emphasizes the need to use research and evidence at every stage of the policy process.

Build Community and Confidence for Early-Career Scholars through the 40 for 40 Fellowship

Aug 13, 2018 06:23 PM

The 40 for 40 Fellowship is an opportunity for young researchers, like me, to have a platform to use their voice and to gain the support of a community. You are building confidence not only in the individual but are helping to ensure that the field remains diverse. Think about your perspectives on policy and what made you passionate about it. Representation matters and you have the chance through the 40 for 40 Fellowship to provide another researcher the opportunity to share their story.

APPAM is the Natural Place to Encourage New Scholars in our Field | APPAM Leadership Blog Series

Aug 02, 2018 07:07 PM

I can still remember my first APPAM presentation in 1993 like it was yesterday. It was at 8 am on a Friday and all six of the panel members were from the West Coast, so we were bleary-eyed and tired. On my panel was a former university system provost, two leading scholars on higher ed governance, the President and CEO of the leading national nonprofit, a senior economist from a renowned think tank, and me—a graduate student at the RAND Graduate School. What an amazing opportunity!

The 2018 International Conference Was Truly Focused on the Theme and Location

Jul 31, 2018 02:08 PM

The conference was filled with great papers on vulnerable populations, new initiatives in cities, and sustainable development. I even chaired a session on public management and government sustainability. It was truly focused on the theme of Public Policy for Sustainable Metropolitan Development, with almost half of all papers mentioning “city” or “urban” or “metropolitan” in their titles.

Request for Proposals: Innovation Lounge at the Fall Research Conference

Jul 30, 2018 01:37 PM

The 40th Anniversary of the Fall Research Conference is a great opportunity to innovate and we invite our attendees to do just that with the Innovation Lounge. Submit a proposal, due September 28. One of the most valuable and critical aspects of the annual Fall Research Conferences are the impromptu conversations attendees have in the hallways, after a session or over lunch, about a project they’re working on or an idea that they have been kicking around and would like some feedback on.
