The Cornell Program in Infrastructure Policy (CPIP) will develop public policies to improve the delivery, maintenance and operation of infrastructure in the United States through teaching, research, and outreach. CPIP will coordinate scholars across multiple disciplines who share an interest in public policies related to infrastructure, and will develop and disseminate research relevant to those policies. CPIP will collaborate with partners in both the profit and non-profit sectors to assist in achieving those goals. Specific activities include:
- Educating the next generation of infrastructure practitioners at both the undergraduate and graduate levels
- Coordinating an active global network of researchers in infrastructure policy
- Disseminating research findings through conferences, policy briefs, and other outreach efforts Maintaining a web presence dedicated to global infrastructure policy issues
- Tracking data on infrastructure projects and policies relevant for innovative approaches
Aging infrastructure combined with growing demand in a number of sectors and constrained state and local budgets are placing severe stress on the delivery of critical services. New public policies are needed to address this acute problem.
The Cornell Program in Infrastructure Policy will focus on the development and dissemination of public policies to help address those important national issues.
CPIP is housed within the Department of Policy Analysis and Management in the College of Human Ecology. CPIP is now accepting seed funding to further its goals. For more information, please contact CPIP Director Rick Geddes.
