THE BROOKINGS INSTITUTION ADVANCED STUDY PROGRAM 1775 Massachusetts Avenue, N.W., Washington, D.C. 20036 .Approved For Release 2000/08/21 : CIA-RDP78-06367A000100160012-0 Approved For Release 2000/08/21 : CIA-RDP78-06367A000100160012-0 THE BROOKINGS INSTITUTION is an independent organization devoted to nonpartisan research, education, and publication in econo- mics, government, and foreign policy. In its research, its role is that of independent analyst and critic, committed to publishing its findings for the information of the public. In its conferences and other activities, its function is to serve as a bridge between the academic community and leaders in public and private affairs by bringing new knowledge to the attention of decision makers and affording scholars a practical insight into policy issues. The Institution was incorporated in 1927 to merge the activities of three antecedent organizations: the Institute for Government Research, founded in 1916; the Institute of Economics, established in 1922; and the Robert Brookings Graduate School of Economics and Government, organized in 1924. The consolidated organization was named in honor of Robert Somers Brookings (1850-1932), a St. Louis businessman whose leadership was central in the development of the earlier institutions. Brookings is maintained largely by endowment and by private sup- port. In addition to its three research programs (Economic Studies, Governmental Studies, and Foreign Policy Studies), Brookings has a Computer Center, a Publications Program, and an Advanced Study Program. ANNOUNCING 1967-68 conferences on executive leadership in democratic government for federal THE ADVANCED STUDY PROGRAM is a unique kind of institution of higher education. It provides special opportunities for leaders in public and private life to study and discuss current and emerging policy issues of national and international importance. By enriching their knowledge and understanding so that they may carry out their responsibilities more effectively, the Program contributes to the strengthening of the-senior public service and the preparation of leaders in private life for more active participation in public affairs. Since the Program was established in 1957, some 3,000 federal execu- tives and more than 3,000 top-level officials in business, labor, and the professions, members of Congress, and civic leaders have participated in its activities. In addition to the conferences described on the reverse side of this announcement, the Program for 1967-68 will include a conference for general counsels, a conference for senior economists in regulatory agencies, and a series of conferences on business policy and operations for federal executives. Each conference will last for one week. These conferences are for civilian officials in grades GS-16 and above and military/naval officers of flag rank.
