Legislation in Action

New York University is proud to announce the establishment of the John Brademas Center for the Study of Congress at the Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service. The Center is named in honor of NYU President Emeritus and former Member of Congress, Dr. John Brademas. 

Mission

The mission of the John Brademas Center for the Study of Congress is to increase the understanding of Congress-"the People's Branch" of government- its role in making policy; its powers, processes and responsibilities. The Center's bi-partisan work is aimed at scholars, students, current and future public servants and the public. The Center conducts research, teaches and holds public outreach events-such as symposia and conferences-and hosts policy addresses by members of Congress. Our programming aims to explore issues and problems of the legislative branch from new perspectives. As a part of the New York University's Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service, the Center strives to help the next generation of public service leaders develop a deeper understanding of how and why Congress makes decisions.

Supporters

The activities of the Brademas Center are supported by a grant directed by the U.S. Congress as well as by private contributions from individuals, corporations and foundations.
