The new Levin Center seeks to inspire and train a new generation to use bipartisan oversight as an instrument of change, and to increase integrity, transparency, and accountability in civil society. Launched in 2015 at Wayne State University Law School, in honor of Senator Carl Levin, the center will educate legislators, their staffs, law students, and attorneys on effective techniques to conduct bipartisan, in-depth, fact-based oversight of public and private sector activities. Through training workshops and videos, internships, academic programming, and research, the center will teach future federal, state, local, and international leaders the oversight skills needed to produce meaningful bipartisan public policy.

The bipartisan Levin Center at Wayne Law School is the nation’s leading authority on legislative oversight at all levels of government. Housed at Wayne State University Law School in Detroit with an office in Washington, D.C., its mission is to promote bipartisan, fact-based oversight and civil discourse as instruments of change. Led by veteran congressional investigators and former federal and state elected officials, the center, through training, scholarship, and convenings, elevates bipartisan fact-finding to interrupt the cycle of polarization that plagues Congress. The center also works with scholars and practitioners from across the U.S. to build oversight as an academic discipline and as a pillar of American democracy.
