Knowing What's Real
Most of the Center’s work in 2016 focused on getting results of one kind or another. However, there were and are particular areas where the results sought expressed deeply held values at the core of how we want to be known.
Gwen Jordan, legal studies professor at UIS and a staff attorney with the Illinois Innocence Project, teaching a class on wrongful convictions, and how to prevent them, at the Police Training Institute of the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.
Knowing what’s real is one of the basic functions of a university. The pursuit of truth by faculty and students justifies the existence of institutions of higher education. Developing and appraising evidence – knowing what’s real – has always guided the work of the Center for State Policy and Leadership
Amanda Vinicky, then statehouse bureau chief for NPR Illinois (now with Chicago Tonight on WTTW-TV PBS) hosts Capitol View on September 9, 2016 to evaluate what’s real about the fight over the AFSCME contract and declining enrollments at some universities, with guests retired political scientist Kent Redfield from UIS and Dave Dahl of WTAX Radio.
Managing What Happens
The Center for State Policy and Leadership focuses on government. And a large part of what governments do is exercise control – manage what happens – in an effort to accomplish public goals.
An osprey on the roof of a “hacking box,” used to reintroduce young birds into the central Illinois habitat where their population has become endangered. Osprey reintroduction is a part of a federally funded project to restore certain species in Illinois being led by UIS environmental science professor Tih-Fen Ting.
