The Mosakowski Institute for Public Enterprise at Clark University hosted its inaugural conference, "University Research and the American Agenda" on November 13 and 14, 2008. The conference brought together leading practitioners and scholars who shared their perspectives on how universities can increase the impact of their research in addressing critical public issues.
The conference featured a free, public lecture by former Massachusetts Governor and presidential candidate Michael Dukakis.
The Mosakowski Institute was established in the fall of 2007, thanks to a generous founding gift from Clark alumni William '76 and Jane '75 Mosakowski. The Institute is dedicated to improving the effectiveness of government and other institutions in addressing social concerns through the mobilization of university research.
