The A. Alfred Taubman Center of Public Policy and American Institutions influences local, national, and global policy makers through high quality research, teaching excellence, and a commitment to community service. The expansive nature of our undergraduate and graduate programs spans several disciplines — instilling strengths that benefit students in any field they pursue. Our alumni have become leaders and innovative change agents as they tackle the complex problems facing society today.
Located in the heart of Brown University and Providence, the Taubman Center provides easy access to the resources and attractions of both the school and the city. Our esteemed reputation and desirable location also attracts a variety of nationally-known visitors. The intellectual spirit of the Center is frequently enriched by speakers such as then-Senator Barack Obama; Donna Brazile, National Democratic Party strategist; Jane Swift, former Governor of Massachusetts; Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg; Cory Booker, Mayor of Newark, NJ; and Congressman James Clyburn from South Carolina.
