About The CenterPrograms
The Center was founded in January 2010 by a group of colleagues, friends, family, and former Gorton staffers who wanted to establish a premier policy research center to honor over six decades of Senator Gorton’s extensive political career and service to Washington State and our nation. The Center is a core, permanent program of The National Bureau of Asian Research (NBR) with three focus areas: policy research, fellowship and internship programs, and the Gorton History Program (archives).
Policy Research: The Gorton Center will conduct policy-relevant research, produce reports, and hold public forums and conferences on the issues of economics & trade, energy security, and counter-terrorism.
Fellows & Interns: The Gorton Center will recruit promising young professionals to teach them Slade’s values and provide them with policy experience at the Gorton Center and on staff in U.S. Senate offices.
History Program: The Gorton Center will ensure that Slade’s contributions to our region and the nation over the past six decades are fully chronicled and effectively disseminated to the public. This includes assisting with the archiving of the Gorton papers at the University of Washington and NBR and developing online access to them.
The Center’s work will promote Senator Gorton’s values of principled leadership, rigorous analysis, intellectual pursuit, integrity, inspiration, effectiveness, bipartisanship, and public service.
