About us

The American Assembly, an affiliate of Columbia University, was founded by Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1950 with the mandate to illuminate issues of public policy. The Assembly seeks to provide information, stimulate discussion, and evoke independent conclusions on matters of vital public interest. A non-profit, nonpartisan organization, The Assembly fulfills its mandate by commissioning original research, convening meetings, and issuing authoritative books and reports.
