September 10, 2016 marked the 39th anniversary of the N.C. Center for Public Policy Research (NCCPPR).
Founded in 1977, the Center’s first first publication, This Land Is Your Land, explored the issue of state land management. Click here to take a look back at our first report.
The Center’s mission is to strengthen public policy through nonpartisan research, education, and community engagement. We conduct high-quality, objective research and provide insights, analysis, and recommendations on public policy issues of statewide importance. We educate decision makers to help them form sound policy. We inform citizens about how their government operates and help them understand the connection between policy and their daily lives. We encourage engagement by convening diverse voices and providing tools to increase civic participation.
