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.

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.
