The Institute of Government and Public Affairs recently embarked on an effort to focus its mission, by targeting some of the state’s most pressing policy topics, and to expand the scope of its expertise, by increasing the number of U of I scholars affiliated with IGPA. We are in the process of updating our website to reflect these changes.
The primary principle driving IGPA's work is that evidence-based and objective information, gathered using the most appropriate research methods, is critical to all policy conversations. IGPA works with the University of Illinois System’s accomplished scholars to generate nonpartisan analysis and information essential to thoughtful and effective policy discussion.
IGPA does not take positions on issues. IGPA works with U of I experts to provide objective, data-driven analysis. Neither their methods nor the outcome of their work is influenced by policymakers who request information, funders or university administration.
