The Policy Research Shop at Dartmouth's Rockefeller Center for Public Policy and the Social Sciences provides students opportunities to research topics critical to the legislatures of New Hampshire and Vermont. Each term students are selected and guided by a Research Associate on the focus, direction, development, and analysis of professional public policy research on issues confronting the two legislatures. In-depth research during the fall term is followed by response research while the legislatures are in session during the winter and spring. Several recent policy studies put science into its broad social context, including Lead Poisoning in New Hampshire: Policy Options for Primary Prevention, Cellulosic Ethanol, Riparian Zone Protection in Vermont, MTBE Presence in Groundwater and The Use of Biodiesel in Vermont.
