Policy happens in the states. SSN chapters are there.

About SSN Chapters

The Scholars Strategy Network is a network of chapters across the country led by volunteer scholars. Chapters advance the mission of the network by enriching local, state, and national policy debates with research and evidence-based solutions and by developing publicly engaged leaders in academia.

Chapters take on their own projects that build relationships between scholars and policymakers, civic leaders, and journalists. They give members opportunities to build skills, access national SSN resources, and become part of a community of scholars who want to use their research to improve policy.
