The Institute for Policy Integrity at NYU’s School of Law is a nonpartisan advocacy organization and think tank dedicated to improving the quality of governmental decisionmaking. Established in 2008 with Hewlett Foundation support, it does so through advocacy and scholarship in the fields of administrative law, cost-benefit analysis, and public policy. The Institute is especially interested in promoting sound policy to protect the environment, public health and safety, and consumer welfare. In its first three years of operation, the Institute has established itself at NYU Law, participated extensively in state and federal advocacy, increased the capacity of governments and civil society to use cost-benefit analysis to promote sound public policy, and published numerous studies and academic pieces that have attracted the attention of media and policymakers alike.

for support of the Equity and Democracy Initiative
The Equity and Democracy Initiative at NYU is an ambitious, multifaceted initiative to catalyze understanding, innovation, high-impact work, and social change. The initiative combines scholarship, field-building, experiential education, academic convenings, internships, and fellowships to examine how inequality functions, is exacerbated, and can most effectively be disrupted — in our economy and in our democracy. The initiative is sponsored by the Center on Race, Inequality, and the Law at NYU School of Law and NYU Wagner Graduate School of Public Service.
