for support of the Dreier Roundtable public policy program  
The Dreier Roundtable at Claremont McKenna College is a multidisciplinary public policy program to attract, educate, and promote future leaders in public policy. The Roundtable has three primary goals: to provide a venue for discussion of public policy issues, to make a contribution to research in public policy, and to educate and train future policy leaders. This grant would support the Roundtable’s ongoing work, including the launch of a new "Madison Project" aimed at understanding and mitigating the current hyperpartisan, fragmented nature of policymaking in the United States. The Madison Project will include both an analysis of the roots of current polarization, resulting in an edited volume aimed at understanding the problem of polarization, and a policy lab to engage faculty and students to work with clients on real-world policy issues.
