Catalyze a New Era of Problem Solving

An educational institution like no other, Pardee RAND Graduate School has a crucial role to play in fulfilling RAND's campaign mission: It will be an engine of new ideas and talent as well as a vital platform for new tools and strategies. It will also be a lab for exploring, experimenting with, and piloting new solutions for communities and for a fundamentally transformed world. We will share what we develop with our higher education peers as well as with the RAND project teams working to counter Truth Decay, redesign institutions, and revitalize communities.

Key Themes

New Policy Tools and Approaches

New technologies such as machines that can learn, the Internet of Things, personalized medicine, cryptocurrency, and more are shaping a dramatically changed world. In such a world, existing frameworks of understanding no longer necessarily apply, and new ones are needed.

The Future of Pardee RAND and Public Policy Education

Pardee RAND has set out to redefine public policy. Today the school is pioneering a new policy paradigm that more closely considers who is affected by policy and does not constrain where solutions come from.

Intellectual Freedom and Innovation

An integral part of RAND, the graduate school enjoys the intellectual freedom of a university without the structural constraints. The talent, tools, and ideas that stem from Pardee RAND expand RAND’s ability to benefit communities throughout the world.

Students and Faculty in a Mission-Driven Community

As part of the graduate program, students participate on RAND research projects, gaining real-world work experience, while faculty have the ability to apply the latest tools and technologies to their client work. All are committed to improving lives through research, analysis, and innovation.
