Meet the Fellows

The current Gordon Fellow is Ryan LaRochelle.


Established in 1987, the Gordon Public Policy Center supports research; campus-based lectures, workshops and conferences; and publications focused on various aspects of public policymaking in the United States and other developed democracies.

The Center and its activities is supported by a continuing program of gifts from the James Gordon Foundation in Chicago, Illinois. The Gordon Foundation also provides support for fellowships in the Department of Politics for doctoral students working in the field of American politics and public policy.
