  • Student fellowship and internship programs that offer graduate and undergraduate students opportunities to advance their careers in research and public service, and promote civic leadership.
  • Library services that provide researchers with cutting-edge resources and expertise.
  • Research and conferences on policy innovation, political reform, and other pressing California and national issues that provide a forum for interaction with political leaders and public education.
