Our Statement Regarding Closing of Collins Center for Public Policy in Miami

The LeRoy Collins Institute is saddened to learn of the dissolution of the Collins Center for Public Policy in Miami. Florida needs more, not less, quality public policy research. We want to emphasize that the LeRoy Collins Institute at Florida State University is independent of the Collins Center and is not affected by today’s action. We will continue to provide top-quality, timely research for the state that exemplifies the vision and principles of our founder and namesake, Governor LeRoy Collins.

LCI and CoreMessage Partnership is Award-Winning at Local and State Levels!

Recently, the LeRoy Collins Institute in partnership with CoreMessage, won a Florida Public Relations Association local and state Golden Image Award for excellence in public relations. The award was given as a result of the excellent execution of a public information campaign to heighten awareness of the growing problem of underfunded local pension plans. The successful campaign received more than 12 million media impressions and the LeRoy Collins Institute garnered articles in nearly every major media outlet in Florida.
