Arizona Governance and Policy Academy
Education and training for Arizona’s new legislators on procedure, organization and key issues
The Arizona Policy and Governance Academy at Arizona State University is the first university-based program in the country to address a perennial challenge: building capacity in the state legislature.
With term limits in Arizona, it is not unusual for a large membership turnover to occur when a new legislature convenes. Yet, pressing, complex issues like the state budget, healthcare and security do not wait for our newly elected lawmakers to grasp the nuances of the legislative system and state government structure through which they must act.
This program is specifically designed to help first-time elected officials quickly grasp the processes, culture, communications and interactions related to service in the state legislature.
