Santa Monica College’s Public Policy Institute provides nonpartisan community programs exploring key economic, social, and political issues. The Institute offers FREE, informative discussions
on the policy issues that affect our daily lives.
Founded by LA County Supervisor and former California State Senator Sheila Kuehl and SMC political science professor Richard Tahvildaran-Jesswein (former Chair of Excellence, Philosophy & Social Science), the Institute is currently led by co-directors Tahvildaran-Jesswein and SMC political science adjunct professor Shari Davis (who also chairs Community for Excellent Public Schools).
Several programs and topical discussions are planned for Fall 2015, including panels and community discussions. Details were not confirmed at press time. Please visit www.smc.edu/ppi for up-to-date information.
