American Assembly at Columbia University

The American Assembly, an affiliate of Columbia University, was founded by President Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1950 "to illuminate issues of public policy". The Assembly's major objectives are: to focus attention and stimulate informed discussion on a range of critical U.S. policy topics, both domestic and international; to inform government officials, community and civic leadership, and the general public regarding the factual background and the range of policy options in a given issue; to facilitate increased communication among decision makers from the public and private sectors, as well as from institutions and organizations concerned with critical public policy issues; and to raise on a continuing basis the level and quality of public policy discourse on national and international issues. *NOTE FROM CIAO: This institution no longer publishes original research.*
