A. Alfred Taubman Center for American Politics and Policy

Since 1984, the A. Alfred Taubman Center for American Politics and Policy has been the hub connecting students, faculty, the community, and distinguished visitors for interdisciplinary study, research, and advocacy of sound public policy and the betterment of American institutions. 

The Taubman Center, one of several research centers within the Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs, influences local, national, and global policy makers through high quality research, speaker events, and a commitment to community service. Located in the heart of Brown University and Providence, the Center benefits from the resources and attractions of both the school and the city.

The intellectual spirit of the Center is frequently enriched by nationally known speakers including then-Senator Barack Obama; Rep. Elijah Cummings, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg; Cory Booker, then-Mayor of Newark, NJ; and South Carolina Congressman James Clyburn, among many policy luminaries.
