Aspen at Roosevelt House is a discussion series about timely public policy issues, is a partnership between the Aspen Institute and the Roosevelt House Public Policy Institute. It reflects the shared missions of both Institutions to provide a forum for public dialogue about the most important issues of the day.
Roosevelt House, an integral part of Hunter College since 1943, reopened in 2010 as a public policy institute honoring the distinguished legacy of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt. Its mission is three-fold: to educate students in public policy and human rights, to support faculty research, and to foster creative dialogue. The new institute provides opportunities for students to analyze public policy and experience meaningful civic engagement; for faculty to research, teach, and write about important issues of the day; and for scholarly and public audiences to participate in high-profile lectures, seminars and conferences.
