Bruce Cain to Head IGS

Posted June 9, 1999

Political Science Professor Bruce Cain will soon take over as director of the campus's Institute of Governmental studies (IGS), a leading research center in politics, government and public policy.

Cain, who has been serving as associate director of IGS, will become director July 1.

"I am excited by the prospects of making the IGS an even more important voice in the national debate over political design and reform by fostering high-quality academic research on important related issues," said Cain.

Institute faculty, students and scholars study American government and politics at the national, state, and local levels. Founded in 1919, it is UC Berkeley's oldest organized research unit.

Cain, who studied as a Rhodes Scholar at Trinity College, Oxford, holds a doctorate in Political Science from Harvard University. He has written extensively about politics and has served as a polling consultant for local and state politicians.
