LEAD 2018




2018 LEAD Conference


The 2018 LEAD conference will provide a forum for participants to exchange ideas related to a new initiative that the McCourt School is launching to better understand the loss of trust in American institutions. Under the leadership of Professor Jonathan Ladd and in partnership with McCourt’s Baker Center for Leadership & Governance, we are proud to introduce The Baker Poll, which in future years will regularly survey Americans in innovative ways about trust in American institutions.

To kickoff this new initiative, the McCourt School of Public Policy will host more than 150 researchers, advocates, policy experts and students from across the country for the 2018 LEAD Conference. Participants will hear from a stellar group of nationally recognized experts in political science, political communications, and journalism.
