and the Woodrow Wilson Center
"...such a Center, symbolizing and strengthening the fruitful relations between the world of learning and the world of public affairs, would be a suitable memorial to the spirit of Woodrow Wilson..." (U.S. Public Law 90-637)
The Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars honors the memory of the United States' 28th President (and its only to hold a Ph.D.) by uniting the world of ideas to the world of public policy. The Woodrow Wilson Center does this by supporting pre-eminent scholarship and linking that scholarship to issues of concern to officials in Washington and beyond as well as to the leaders of international business. As a non-partisan institute for advanced study, the Woodrow Wilson Center does not have a legislative or policy agenda, but aims to shed the light of the timeless on the timely.
Founded by an act of Congress in 1968, the Woodrow Wilson Center is headquartered in Washington, DC as part of the Smithsonian Institution. A public/private partnership, it is governed by its own Board of Trustees appointed directly by the U.S. President.

An Unique Organization
Each year, through its unique approach as a non-partisan research organization, the Wilson Center:
- welcomes more than 150 of the world's top policy experts from the fields of academia, journalism, business, and government.
- grants these experts the freedom to further their study and research while within our walls.
- allows the 23 research programs housed at the Center to engage individuals representing all viewpoints.
- encourages the international business leader to listen and to contribute to the shaping of public policy.
- gives prominent policymakers, both domestic and foreign, the opportunity to use the Center as a platform for important policy speeches without being pegged as biased.
