CENTER FOR INNOVATION &
LEADERSHIP IN GOVERNMENT
Focus on City Politics and Policy
The School of Public Affairs at Baruch College has an enduring commitment to NYC. Recognizing the need to train newly elected City Council members, we created the Center for Innovation and Leadership in Government. This center serves as a research, training, and resource center for government, with emphasis on New York City Government.
In 2001 and 2005, CILG partnered with the New York City Council in presenting briefing materials and preparing a two day orientation program for newly elected City Council members.
The Center continues to sponsor a series of policy discussions, featuring leaders in New York's civic and governmental communities debating such issues as health policy, public schools, political lobbying, polling, and youth media. These events are open to all interested New Yorkers.
In addition CILG provides access to non-partisan, interdisciplinary, scholarly, academically rigorous policy research that gives government officials the ability to address complex issues. The Center has adopted a broad range of activities including serving as the home of the archives of New York City's fiscal crisis of the 1970s.We encourage civic organizations, legislators and government offices interested in engaging the Center in examining public policy issues to contact Angelina Delgado, Director of Operations at 646-660-6827 or email@example.com
