THE BROOKINGS INSTITUTION The Brookings Institution-- Devoted to Public Service through Research and Training in the Social Sciences -- was incorporated on December 8, 1927. Broadly stated, the Institution has two primary purposes:
The first is to aid constructively in the development of sound national
policies; and the second is to offer training of a super-graduate character
to students of the social sciences. The Institution will maintain a series
of co-operating institutes, equipped to carry out comprehensive and interrelated research projects.The responsibility for the final determination of the Institution's policies and its program of work and for the administration of its endowment
is vested in a self-perpetuating Board of Trustees. The Trustees have,
however, defined their position with reference to the investigations conducted by the Institution in a by-law provision reading as follows: "The
primary function of the Trustees is not to express their views upon the
scientific investigations conducted by any division of the Institution, but
only to make it possible for such scientific work to be done under the
most favorable auspices." Major responsibility for "formulating general
policies and co-ordinating the activities of the various divisions of the
Institution" is vested in the President. The by-laws provide also that
"there shall be an Advisory Council selected by the President from among
the scientific staff of the Institution and representing the different divisions of the Institution."
