The institute brings together our many efforts to strengthen public service leadership, bolstering our more than a decade’s worth of expertise in developing public service leaders who work to build a better government 和 a stronger democracy.

These factors are critical to our vision of a dynamic 和 innovative federal government—led by public service leaders of integrity—that effectively serves our diverse nation.
