The Center for Research, Public Policy and Training was established by Texas State University on January 25, 2010.  It was created to provide an opportunity for Texas State University to assist legislators, public officials, agencies and communities across Texas, conduct research and find solutions to problems in public policy.  

Housed within the Department of Political Science, the Center seeks to engage experts from multiple academic disciplines and collaborate with public and community officials.  The Center serves to locate and provide funding for research as well as to provide specific training and education to the community as identified by research and community needs.
