Policy Matters is a quarterly series of reports that provide timely research and guidance on issues that are of concern to policymakers at the local, state, and national levels.

TO OUR READERS: Policy Matters was formed at a time when the University of California, Riverside was in the process of proposing a new school of public policy. 

We are thrilled to report that the UCR School of Public Policy has been officially launched, with a set of core faculty in place by Fall 2014 and plans to enroll the first class of Masters students in Fall 2015.

Policy Matters will be rebranded and relaunched as we look forward to the start of the new school of Public Policy.

In the meantime, please take a look at our archive of back issues.
