The Harkin Institute

The Harkin Institute was founded on the premise that good public policy is 

best achieved when policymakers have access to high-quality information, political  processes are open and well-understood, and citizens are informed and active participants. We stand by our five values: inclusion, education, respect, accessibility, and opportunity, which we strive to incorporate in our everyday operations. 

Your gift will support non-partisan research, learning, and outreach around the topics that defined Senator Tom Harkin’s career:  labor and employment, people with disabilities, retirement security, and wellness and nutrition.
