The Center for Policy Innovation is Heritage's "think tank within a think tank." The Center is modeled on units within creative companies and specific institutions that develop breakthrough ideas.
Driven in part by the technology of online education and in part by creative new business models, American higher education is encountering a remarkable period of “disruptive innovation.” So what will college look like in 2020? The Center for Policy Innovation invited Vance Fried, Riata Professor of Entrepreneurship at Oklahoma State University, to offer his predictions.
There is a sense in our country that the American Dream is not what it used to be, and some research suggests there is now less opportunity and economic mobility in America. But the picture is complex, and the best way to understand...
The Harlem Children's Zone has attracted bipartisan interest as a combination of educational and support services that appears to produce remarkable educational results. How does it do that? How successful is it? And can the model and its results be "scaled up" and replicated?

The Center for Policy Innovation is Heritage’s “think tank within a think tank.” The Center is modeled on those units within pace-setting companies and scientific institutions that develop breakthrough ideas.
The Center forms special teams of Heritage analysts and outside experts to explore and refine creative policy concepts and then feed them into the regular Heritage policy development process.
Much of the Center’s work is “experimental”, in which seminars, studies and Discussion Papers lay out policy ideas for examination and debate. After seeking reaction internally and externally, such policy thought experiments are refined and, in conjunction with Heritage research departments, turned into fully developed policy proposals.
In addition, the Center acts as one of Heritage’s links with the research community outside the Washington Beltway, fostering policy conversations and joint research projects.
This website provides a selection of cutting-edge papers and proposals generated by Heritage analysts and outside scholars on topics of particular focus for the Center. In keeping with the exploratory approach of the Center, the Key Documents included under each issue tab contain especially important policy ideas that push the envelope of discussion.
