About Us


Advancing socioeconomic mobility through community education, bipartisan research, and rigorous policy analysis and development. 


The Pennsylvania Policy Forum works to engage the policy making process by providing students with opportunities to become policy entrepreneurs, as well as provide bipartisan research to legislators at the City, County, and State levels of government, non-profit organizations and community groups. The Pennsylvania Policy Forum is a focal point for advancing the knowledge base of our community, and for educating tomorrow’s policy experts and political leaders.

The Forum supports our community in a number of ways:

  • Creating an informed populace by providing key data points that can inform deliberations on issues of concern for citizens of our county and state. 
  • Connecting with community members through educational initiatives that further inform the public and voters on policy problems around us.
