About the McCourtney Institute for Democracy

The McCourtney Institute for Democracy was founded in 2012 as an interdisciplinary center for research, teaching, and outreach on issues of democracy, broadly defined. The McCourtney Institute coordinates innovative programs and projects in collaboration with two Centers of Excellence — the Center for American Political Responsiveness and the Center for Democratic Deliberation — and other entities at Penn State.
