Category Archives: White Papers

This series is designed to promote ongoing research and encourage discussion about issues of concern to everyone. These White Papers will seek to explore current issues and offer research results, literature reviews, and suggestions for further research, all of which can be used to inform citizens and decision-making at all levels of society. Each White Paper is intended to take on its own unique flavor, reflecting the specific research question at hand and the way in which researchers have sought to address it. We hope to present provocative and impactful research from a wide array of policymakers, scholars and disciplines that is rooted in the values and ideals of Senator Baker as demonstrated by his long and illustrious career in public service. In the end our goal is a well-informed electorate and sound public policy that will advance the wellbeing of the state and the nation.
