Irma Rangel Public Policy Institute
The Irma Rangel Public Policy Institute
(PPI) is a research unit of the University of Texas at Austin in the Department of Government. It focuses on public policy issues salient to the State of Texas. Although our research has covered a wide range of subjects over the last decade, the PPI is particularly interested in issues relevant to the growing Latino/Hispanic population. The PPI provides unique opportunities for graduate students to acquire experience conducting policy research. The PPI also supports the publication of books, reports, papers, journal articles, and book chapters, thereby disseminating our research to a wide audience.
