Schwarzenegger Institute For State and Global Policy


The USC Schwarzenegger Institute for State and Global Policy is committed to advancing post-partisanship, where leaders put people over political parties and work together to find the best ideas and solutions to benefit the people they serve.

The Importance of Post-Partisanship

The USC Schwarzenegger Institute strongly believes that our country is at its best when we put what’s best for the people over what’s best for politics.

The Power of People and Innovation

The USC Schwarzenegger Institute understands that great innovation and great solutions rarely come from government, but rather from individuals, entrepreneurs, and the community. The Schwarzenegger Institute is dedicated to seeking out these people, organizations, businesses, entrepreneurs, and ideas.

Guiding Principles

Whether at the Institute’s symposiums, summits, or in the academic research conducted to support the Institute, the following principles will guide its work in seeking solutions to the important public policy issues of the day:
  • Science and evidence have an important role to play in finding solutions
  • Local solutions are often the best means to solve global problems
  • Future leaders, including students and young people, must help shape the solutions for our future

Policy Areas

The Institute will focus on the following five policy areas:
  • Education
  • Energy & environment
  • Fiscal & economic policy
  • Health & human wellness
  • Political reform
