University Policy Centers and Institutes: The Think Tank as Public Service Function.
Melnick, Rob
Metropolitan Universities: An International Forum, v10 n1 p9-19 Sum 1999
Public-policy centers and institutes are a growing, visible part of many universities. A cross between think tanks and academic units that provide public service, they focus on policy research and facilitation of public discourse. A national survey reveals faculty's role in their work, the applied multidisciplinary nature of their activities, and their impact on public policy-making. (Author/MSE)
