Prof. John Krauss, '76 to Lead IU's New Public Policy Institute
Indiana University's School of Public and Environmental Affairs (SPEA) has established the Indiana University Public Policy Institute. Located near the Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis campus, the new Institute will serve as an umbrella organization for research centers affiliated with the IU School of Public and Environmental Affairs, including:
- The Center for Urban Policy and the Environment
- The Center for Health Policy
- The newly formed Center for Criminal Justice Research
It also will support the Office of International Community Development and the Indiana Advisory Commission on Intergovernmental Relations.
John L. Krauss, an adjunct professor of law and 1976 graduate of the law school will direct the Institute. Krauss is a SPEA faculty member and former Indianapolis deputy mayor. Krauss and his team of researchers recently staffed the Kernan-Shepard Commission on Local Government Reform.
Collectively, the Indiana University Public Policy Institute, its three centers and its team of experts from SPEA statewide will deliver research, service and consulting on the vital issues facing policy leaders today.
