The School of Public Policy and the Davenport Institute will host a Davenport Discussion featuring Dr. Angela Hawken, associate professor of public policy and James Q. Wilson Fellow, on Wednesday, September 30, at noon, in SPP 175. A light lunch will be served.

Hawken will launch an innovative venture called BetaGov which aims to transform knowledge generation in the public sector and increase the evidence available for public-sector programs by enabling practitioners to conduct randomized control trials of their own programs. Hawken will introduce BetaGov with a presentation she has delivered for a wide variety of federal and state officials in both criminal justice and health and human services.
