Governance

Three bodies govern SIEPR, providing guidance and support.

The SIEPR Advisory Board is our board of directors. The generous commitment of Advisory Board members allows SIEPR to carry out its work effectively and is critical to our success. Members offer their time, thought, and financial support. The Executive Committee of the Board oversees our goals and long-range plans.

SIEPR Senior Fellows are members of Stanford’s academic council who actively participate in institute research and governance. They set high scholarly standards for SIEPR and recruit new academic members. Some Senior Fellows also lead SIEPR centers, including the Stanford Stanford King Center on Global Development and the Stanford Environmental and Energy Policy Analysis Center.

The SIEPR Steering Committee, composed of faculty from throughout Stanford, advises our director and guide us on research and academic matters. Committee members have broad experience in economic policy. Many of them have served as officials or advisers in local, state, and federal government, as well as foreign governments and NGOs. The Steering Committee includes former chairmen of the Council of Economic Advisers in the Clinton and both Bush administrations, and senior officials in the U.S. Justice and Labor Departments, the Securities and Exchange Commission, the World Bank, the Federal Communications Commission, and the Federal Trade Commission.
