A Resource for Public Leaders

About Us

The Hassenfeld Institute for Public Leadership works with elected officials, state and local agencies, and public interest groups to provide professional development, working group facilitation, and policy analysis that strengthens the state of public leadership.

What We Do


The Hassenfeld Institute hosts a variety of programs including conferences and workshops for state and local agencies. Leveraging the interdisciplinary faculty at Bryant University, the Institute works to identify and address leadership challenges with customized programs and interactive modules.

Our Events


The Hassenfeld Institute develops and maintains a library of case studies, policy reports, and public opinion polls in order to provide crucial knowledge to both leaders and the general public. These publications are often integrated into Institute events and are made publicly accessible.
