The Indiana University Public Policy Institute was established in 2008 as a multidisciplinary institute with the IU School of Public and Environmental Affairs (SPEA). Its original function was to serve as an umbrella organization for the Center for Urban Policy and the Environment (CUPE), established in 1992, and the Center for Criminal Justice Research (CCJR), established in 2008. These centers are now represented by research areas within the institute. The IU Public Policy Institute conducts research, policy analysis, program evaluation, facilitated discussions, and long-term planning for clients from the public, private, government, academic, and nonprofit sectors. Its primary areas of research are economic development, tax and finance, criminal justice, public safety, housing and community development, and land use and the environment.
