Guarini Institute For Government and Leadership
The Guarini Institute
The Guarini Institute for Government and Leadership at Saint Peter’s University is a non-partisan vehicle that drives public policy discussion of some of the state’s most critical issues. Within this space, the institute hosts panel discussions with key elected officials, academics, non-profit leaders and others to discuss and debate the opportunities and challenges connected with public policies. Our events are free and open to the public and we urge our campus community and citizens across NJ to attend and build awareness of policies that impact our daily lives.
Please join us for the following Fall 2016 events:
October 11, 2016 – The March Toward a $15 Minimum Wage
October 24, 2016 – The New Jersey Heroin and Opiate Crisis
November 2, 2016 – Overhauling New Jersey’s School Funding Formula
November 9, 2016 – Fixing NJ’s Broken Pension Panel
Engage. Inspire. Exchange.
Join our Guarini sponsored events and forums. Each month we’ll be inviting guest speakers to discuss public policy topics with our students and the community. Stay connected and share your thoughts. We need you there.
