Staudt Named Academic Director of USC Schwarzenegger Institute for State and Global Policy

Nancy Staudt, Edward G. Lewis Professor in Law and Public Policy at StaudtUSC, has been named Academic Director of the new Schwarzenegger Institute for State and Global Policy:

Guiding principles include: science and evidence as an important role to play when finding solutions to policy and social issues; local solutions are often the best means to solve global problems and, future leaders, including students and young people, must help shape the solutions for our future.
