Andrus Center for Public Policy

The Andrus Center for Public Policy advances the legacy issues of former Idaho Governor and Secretary of the Interior, Cecil D. Andrus — wise use of our environmental resources and public lands, ensuring our children enter the classroom ready to learn, and cultivating leadership from all segments of our society. The Andrus Center provides a nationally respected forum for addressing vital public policy issues of our time.

What We Do

Our well-attended events highlight independent, nonpartisan engagement on critical issues confronting Idaho, the American West, and the United States.
