Driving progress on the critical challenges facing humanity

SIPA’s mission–to educate the next generation of leaders and problem-solvers and contribute our knowledge to advance human progress–has never been more relevant, nor your support more essential to our success.

Whether seeking to increase global peace and security, strengthen democratic resilience, mitigate the effects of climate change and foster sustainable development, promote economic stability and prosperity for all, or advance policies for new technologies and positive innovation, we work around the globe to bring fresh ideas and new approaches to policy analysis and implementation in the 21st century. Our community spans the globe but we share a common commitment: to drive progress on the critical challenges facing humanity.

SIPA is one of the special places in the world that can bridge the gap between the academy and public policy and work for global solutions, informed by deep knowledge of the world and local conditions. We hope our work will inspire you to join us in this effort. There has never been a more important time.
