About IGPA

IGPA improves public policy discussion through non-partisan, evidence-based research and public engagement in Illinois.

The state of Illinois faces big challenges that require big ideas. At IGPA, we believe that ideas and evidence should be the bedrock of democracy. We mobilize the university’s most accomplished public policy scholars to generate the evidence-based, nonpartisan analysis and information that are essential to a thoughtful and effective policy discussion in Illinois and beyond.
