The event in Washington, D.C. titled “Government-to-University Initiative: A Regional Approach to Advancing Government Effectiveness,” brought together more than 250 leading academics and practitioners from around the nation to discuss how universities and federal, state, and local governments can build sustainable networks to catalyze change.

Featured speakers at the event included Margaret Weichert, deputy director for management for the US Office of Management and Budget; Anne-Marie Slaughter, CEO of New America; and representatives from the initial convenings that took place during the G2U exploratory phase in 2018. The event also included panel discussions which focused on the value of government-university collaborations, lessons learned from the exploratory phase, and the next phase of the initiative: the launch of G2U Regional Councils.
