Taubman Center for American Politics and Policy

The A.

Since 1984, the Taubman Center has influenced local, national, and global policymakers working at the intersection of research and public engagement. 

The Taubman Center’s programming includes:

  • Taubman Center public opinion polls
  • Research through workshops, conferences, and scholarship
  • Engagement with public leaders through a rich speakers series
  • Internship opportunities for students

The Taubman Center is one of several research centers within the Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs. Located in the heart of Brown University and Providence, the Center benefits from the resources and attractions of both the school and the city.
