The Edgar Dyer Institute for Leadership and Public Policy is a resource for both students and the community. For students, it offers an experiential learning opportunity that puts academic theories and concepts into action by fostering civic-mindedness. Dyer Fellows are select students who study and attend workshops, culminating in an individualized research project on a topic of public policy; they also travel to Washington, D.C., to explore centers of policy formation and implementation. For community members, the institute works to create public value, untangle public problems, and find public solutions that have positive and measurable impacts. The institute offers policy analysis and consulting work for nonprofits, local governmental agencies, the county and region.
