Policy Bridge as a "Two-Way Street"

Deep engagement with the policy world is one of the Sanford School’s core values. The Policy Bridge was created to promote engagement as a two-way street, amplify the impact of our research to benefit society, and help our faculty and students be more aware of and responsive to the needs of the policy community.

Our aim is that:

  • Duke’s scholarly research gets to policymakers and influencers when and how they need it.
  • The real-world knowledge and questions of these groups informs and strengthens research.

The Policy Bridge serves the entire Duke community. Partners to date have included Bass Connections, the Duke Global Health Institute’s Evidence Lab and Center for Health Policy and Inequalities Research, the Duke Initiative for Science and Society and Duke departments and schools such as public policy, psychology, law, and neuroscience.
