National Policy Consensus Center

We advance the use of collaborative governance methods in Oregon and nationally through innovative services, education, and research that help people collaborate to address public policy disputes and implement community-based solutions.

Our work reaches all of Oregon and beyond. We've facilitated discussions that helped Oregon and neighboring states agree on shared plans for protecting endangered species. We've helped local Oregon communities agree on highway projects to address congestion in their towns. We've helped small communities find funding to build a new school, improve libraries, and support entrepreneurship. And we've facilitated large-scale policy development and implementation of education and health care reform in Oregon.
