50 Years of Public Policy at Duke
Since its founding in 1971, the Sanford School of Public Policy has been at the forefront of the movement that carved out public policy as a distinct field. The school, originally named the Institute of Policy Sciences and Public Affairs, quickly distinguished itself from other policy programs through an emphasis on undergraduate education and the humanistic dimension of public policy.
During the 2021-2022 academic year, we celebrate 50 years of public policy at Duke. This website is a hub for all things related to the anniversary.
