Understanding dysfunction in American political institutions requires an integrated view of America’s two distinctive political parties. Because efforts to improve American governance will inevitably involve both parties, reformers must rely on a full understanding of each party’s goals, constituencies, and tendencies. This grant will support an ongoing research program led by Matt Grossman, Associate Professor of Political Science at Michigan State University, in which he and his collaborators are investigating asymmetries between Democrats and Republicans in policy debate arguments, media and research use, and behavior in political institutions in order to understand their effects on American governance and public policy.

for a network improvement community that prepares teachers to focus on racial equity
The Department of Teacher Education at Michigan State University prepares pre-service and in-service teachers through nationally recognized elementary and secondary undergraduate and graduate degree programs. The department’s programs prepare future teachers and teacher educators to become leading scholars and practitioners who deeply understand and work to improve education in its political, social, and cultural contexts. This project will support a network improvement community with Minnesota State University, Mankato; Cleveland State University; and California State University, Dominguez Hills, that seeks to strengthen teacher education through a shared commitment to racial equity.
