The Harkin Institute

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. 

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

Matching Gift Opportunity

Make your gift to the Harkin Institute at Drake University go further with a dollar-for-dollar matching challenge of $2,500 from Ralph Carlson, BA’63 and Hilda Medrano. Your support will empower the important work of the Institute using research, learning and outreach to connect people to policy, all centered on the issues to which Senator Tom Harkin devoted his career.
