LeMieux Center for Public Policy

The LeMieux Center for Public Policy at Palm Beach Atlantic University provides a space for reasoned, thoughtful, and civil discourse on pressing public policy issues confronting Florida, the United States, and the world.

A Letter from the Executive Director, Dr. Robert Lloyd

Palm Beach Atlantic University’s LeMieux Center for Public Policy exists to address pressing public policy issues confronting both the United States and the world. One of the core values of the Center is to provide a space for reasoned, thoughtful, and civil discourse on topics that may be controversial or challenging.

The American experiment in liberty and order depends on a well-informed citizenry to engage in the forum of ideas and actions that are a hallmark of a democratic society. To achieve these ends the LeMieux Center hosts programs, events, and publications for all interested in our vision and mission.

Our website includes additional details that will help you learn about the Center and its resources.
