2007: WPI Splits From New School for Social Research

In 2007, the World Policy Institute and Journal split from The New School, re-incorporating as an independent 501c3 organization. WPI has strategic partnerships with think tanks and universities around the world, and in 2015 announced the launch of the World Policy Institute at Loyola Marymount University, an interdisciplinary think tank in Los Angeles that applies academic research to help solve global policy challenges. A partnership between the New York-based World Policy Institute and LMU, WPI@LMU and its Fellows are developing a scholarly policy network in Los Angeles to address emerging issues in global affairs.
