40 Years of Impact

The establishment of the Arthur Levitt Public Affairs Center in 1980 gave substance to the study of public policy on the Hill. More than a quarter century later, the Levitt Center supports initiatives and provides resources that enable students and faculty to engage in public service and public policy through research, service-learning, lectures, discussion, and practice.

Our History

In 1979, Hamilton received a grant from the Pew Charitable Trust to establish an interdisciplinary program in Public Policy. The fledgling program was designed to encourage students and faculty members to use the three disciplines of economics, government, and philosophy in analyzing specific public policy issues.
