IPPH Official Launch Event

University of The District of Columbia, Student Ballroom, Level 1 4200 Connecticut Ave,NW; Washington, D.C. 2008 @ 11:00 a.m.

The Executive Office of D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser and the University of the District of Columbia are launching an Institute of Politics Policy and History.

The Founding Director of IPPH will be former D.C. Mayor Sharon Pratt.

MISSION Rediscovering District of Columbia history – and its consequential role in determining contemporary politics and policy.

VISION IPPH, housed at the University of the District of Columbia, will encourage constructive, spirited dialogue about tough issues of the day; illuminating these conversations with insights from our city and our nation’s history.

TARGET AUDIENCE

Civic-minded and politically engaged individuals.

OBJECTIVES

  • • Establish programs to expand scholarship about Washington, D.C., utilizing among other resources, the D.C. Archives, while making the District’s history more accessible and intriguing to contemporary audiences.
  • • Explore the cultural/political fault lines that have perennially plagued our nation and obstructed our quest to become a more perfect union.
  • COMPETITION

    While there are other institutes of politics and/or policy in the D.C. area, IPPH is distinctive in that it is attached to the only state university in D.C., UDC-- the future home of the D.C. Archives. With that, IPPH will aggressively harvest the history of our nation and its capital to inform its programs.

    IPPH PROJECTED FUTURE

    While IPPH will continue to be associated with UDC, IPPH is to become a stand-alone nonprofit housed at the University. The initial IPPH team will launch an endowment campaign that will generate operating dollars by 2022. IPPH will also raise interim dollars to support IPPH programs.

    PROGRAMS • Resident fellows • Visiting fellows • Internships • Speaker series • Symposia on comparative new democracies
