Colorado Lab projects underway to effectively implement policy wins from the 2021 legislative session.
Colorado Lab studies informed an array of legislation in this year’s session, including bills that were passed to strengthen care and learning for preschoolers and increase pathways to high school graduation. Our efforts included working with partners to conduct research studies, providing expert testimony, and evaluating the effectiveness of models.
Colorado Lab Director, Dr. Kristin Klopfenstein, was invited to serve as a panel judge for the 2021 Tom Clements Better Government Award. In this blog post, Dr. Klopfenstein reflects on the awards and nominees.
Effective. Efficient. Elegant. The “3 E’s” of former Governor John Hickenlooper’s administration focus on ways to improve performance and efficiency in state government. This project looks back on the administration’s performance improvement initiatives to document the experiences, elevate successes, identify challenges, and inform current and future public officials in Colorado and beyond.
