About the Center

The Gordon Center for American Public Policy, generously funded by the Gordon Foundation of Chicago, supports research and graduate training in American politics and public policy.

The center annually provides stipend support for Department of Politics Ph.D. students who work on U.S. politics.

The center also offers major support to research projects by the American Politics faculty. Currently, the Gordon Foundation is sponsoring a project on Police and American Politics, headed by Associate Professor of Politics Daniel Kryder.
