The Volcker Alliance: Who We Are

As the stewards of Mr. Volcker’s legacy, our goal is to support the public sector workforce by strengthening public service education, championing public service values, and providing strategies to help public servants deliver better results.

Our programs all work in service of our four main strategies to educate, connect, empower, and inspire current and aspiring public servants. We promote innovation in public service education. We build partnerships with government and universities. We drive research on effective government. And we inspire others with the story of Mr. Volcker’s commitment to public service.
