Drawing on the strengths of the University of Chicago's Humanities Division, and the Harris Graduate School of Public Policy, the Cultural Policy Center is "dedicated to fostering research and public dialogue about the practical workings of culture in our lives." On the site, visitors can learn about upcoming conferences sponsored by the Policy Center (many of which are held in Chicago), their ongoing research projects, and publications and working papers developed as part of the work being done at the Center. The working papers deal with a host of different topics, including "The State Arts Agency Policy Environment" and "Making a List and Checking it Twice: The List as a Tool of Historic Preservation." Finally, several lists of germane Internet sites are offered on their links page, thematically divided into research centers and government and advocacy groups.
