Robin Fretwell Wilson
IGPA engages a wide range of policy-oriented faculty across the University System who collaborate within focused working groups. Each of these groups is comprised of dozens of faculty researchers representing each of the three System universities. As questions arise in both the public sphere and academia, IGPA scholars use the latest research methods and work together to evaluate current affairs, ask tough questions, and identify possible solutions.
Members of this working group research ways to make Illinois’ economic and fiscal structure equitable, dynamic, and sustainable.
