Welcome to Madison SSN

About the chapter

Madison SSN launched in 2014 to connect academic researchers with individuals from the government, business, media and non-profit communities to share ideas and analyses of state and national policy challenges. Our events include public presentations of research, scholarly seminars, and panels combining researchers and local political actors, all focusing on timely political issues.
