hoover daily report
Wednesday December 21st, 2016

During Stanford's closure, the Hoover Daily Report will be published once on Wednesday, December 28th. We will resume our regular publishing schedule on Wednesday, January 4th. We invite you to take a look back at 2016 in the features below.


In 2016 our nation faced a broad array of issues at home and abroad. Perennial issues such as slow economic growth, health care reform, turmoil in the Middle East, ISIS, Russia, and the contentious election cycle remained in the forefront, to be joined by the crisis in Syria, refugees, and immigration. Throughout it all, in publications across the country, Hoover fellows offered their unique brand of thoughtful and scholarly insight and ideas.



As 2016 comes to a close, we look back at a busy year at the Hoover Institution. There were many noteworthy activities and initiatives at Hoover as the Institution works to advance policy ideas that promote economic opportunity and prosperity, while securing and safeguarding the peace for America and all mankind.



The Hoover Institution is pleased to announce that the 2016 Annual Report is now available online. It is the premier guide to the policy challenges that top Hoover experts are paying close attention to, as well as how fellows are applying the institution’s resources toward improving individual well-being and national prosperity.


The digital media revolution has transformed the way people obtain information and form opinions. Countless partisan outlets peddle assertions and “sound bites” as indisputable facts. Few people have the knowledge and analytical skills to navigate this torrent of misinformation. They crave credible and accessible sources of facts, analysis, and information about proposed policies and the effects of those already enacted. Seeking to become the foremost source of policy knowledge, wisdom, and insights, we have launched policyed.org.


The year 2016 brought enormous expansion to Hoover Library & Archives’ digitization initiatives, outreach efforts, scholarship, and student engagement. In addition to adding new acquisitions to our collections, we organized well-attended exhibitions, events, and workshops that highlighted the richness of our holdings and the connections of history to policy. The year also yielded increased media coverage of our dynamic and diverse materials and programs.



The Hoover Institution’s Summer Policy Boot Camp (HISPBC) is a one week program in the essentials of today’s national and international public policy landscape (August 20-26, 2017). The program is intended to instruct college students and recent graduates on the economic, political, and social aspects of United States public policy. The goal is to teach students how to think critically about public policy formulation and its results.

Thank you,
The Hoover Institution Strategic Communications Team
