Training the leaders... of tomorrow.


Policy-oriented research forms the core of activities at the Johns Hopkins Institute for Policy Studies (IPS). IPS researchers design studies to identify the scope and contours of public problems, determine the causes of these problems, and fashion effective solutions. Research projects during the current academic year cover such issues as job retention among welfare recipients, housing assistance and long-term dependency, economic development strategies for Baltimore, and the contribution of nonprofits to the local economy.
