Cultural Policy Center
The Cultural Policy Center at the University of Chicago is a nationally recognized interdisciplinary research center dedicated to informing policies that affect the arts, humanities, and cultural heritage. It is a joint initiative of the Harris School of Public Policy Studies and NORC at the University of Chicago. Since 1999, the Cultural Policy Center has served as a forum for new ways of understanding what the arts do, and how they are informed and affected by a range of policies in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors. The center addresses this breadth of study by drawing upon the expertise of the University of Chicago faculty and graduate student researchers, as well as other national and international scholars and cultural sector leaders. Given the Center’s position at the intersection of the humanities, social sciences, law, and policy, its members have worked with a wide range of interdisciplinary scholars.
