The Harkin Institute for Public Policy & Citizen Engagement 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.
