Government Data is a National Treasure | APPAM Leadership Blog Series

Jun 07, 2018 05:42 PM

APPAM has always supported government data. Having worked for 25 years in the Federal Statistical System, I have seen first-hand the importance of high quality data and the direct influence it has on government policy. And this is only possible because of sufficient funding, leadership, and dedicated staff.

Leaning On and Learning From Our Sister Associations | APPAM Leadership Blog Series

May 14, 2018 07:42 PM

As an applied microeconomist who studies the causes and consequences of a range of public policies, I have always felt like APPAM is my primary intellectual home. Part of this fondness goes back to my first experiences at the Fall Research Conferences in the early 2000's. A core group of scholars studying policy issues related to sexual minorities would organize a research session each year. Relative to those first few years of mostly empty rooms, we have come a long way.

Duke/APPAM Opioid Forum Focused on Effective Partnerships and Data

May 07, 2018 01:42 PM

Opioid misuse is a major epidemic across the nation. Local and state officials bear the burden of responses to the epidemic and need assistance coordinating research and resources. The Institutional Member Forum, held on on May 1, 2018, and hosted by Duke Policy Bridge at the Sanford School of Public Policy and APPAM, connected the worlds of research and policy across this escalating public health epidemic.

We cover a lot of important policy topics at APPAM—this one on the opioid crisis is particularly meaningful | APPAM Leadership Blog Series

I know a lot about opioids. More than your average joe, anyway. As an idealistic college grad in the late 1990’s, I was positive that social work was the path for me. I wanted to get some direct service experience, then go into an Masters of Social Work program and go about my merry way, trying to make a difference in the world. We cover a lot of important policy research and issues at APPAM—but this one is particularly meaningful.

There is No Place Like Home... and Dorothy's Ruby Slippers | APPAM Leadership Blog Series

Mar 12, 2018 07:45 PM

Having spent my childhood in Kansas, I’m all about Dorothy’s ruby slippers. There is in fact no place like home, and I’m proud to call APPAM my professional home for the past three plus decades. This will be APPAM’s 40th research conference—our ruby anniversary. Never has rigorous policy evidence been more important. We must continue to attract and support young professionals to grow and improve our field.

Welcome to the Exchange of Ideas | APPAM Leadership Blog Series

Feb 22, 2018 12:57 PM

Forty years ago this summer, a group met at Hilton Head to discuss the possibility of an organization that focused on public policy analysis and management. In fact, our first president, Joel Fleishman, said it was at this meeting that the concept of APPAM was born, with a focus “… on the exchange of ideas and research.” And to this day, we still focus on that exchange of ideas.

Inclusion is Hard and We Must Do Better | APPAM Leadership Blog Series

Jan 17, 2018 12:57 PM

Increasingly, activities that focus on inclusion are becoming more and more important. As I’m sure you’ve experienced at your university or research organization: getting to the how is hard. We all know about the why. Having a membership/staff/faculty/student body/leadership that reflects everybody in the larger group and represents all perspectives in decision making is vital. There’s no question that we need and want to engage in as many diversity activities as possible.

Can Financial Aid Help to Address the Growing Need for STEM Education? | JPAM Featured Article

Dec 18, 2017 04:02 PM

Although workers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields earn above-average wages, the number of college graduates prepared for STEM jobs lags behind employer demand. A key question is how to increase educational investments and degree completion in STEM, especially for low-income and minority students. Castleman, Long, and Mabel examine a potentially overlooked barrier to STEM attainment in college: the financial cost to pursuing study in STEM courses and majors.
