Public Policy Research
for a 21st Century Kentucky
Kentucky's education system has made major strides but still has far to go in providing parents school choice, producing college graduates, and equipping a workforce to compete in a global economy.
Kentucky's public policy must create an environment that encourages entrepreneurship and risk-taking.
Before tomorrow's ideas can shape our world, our business climate must do a better job at showing they are welcomed here.
Kentucky still has a long way to go in balancing safety and justice. We can only truly stand together when we have a system that works for all.
Pegasus Institute is a first of its kind, millennial-led, state-based think-tank. Our mission is to provide public policy research and solutions that help improve the lives of all Kentuckians. Pegasus Institute operates as an independent, non-partisan, privately funded research organization focused on state and local policies.
We believe that Kentucky has the potential to emerge as a national leader and a beacon of the New South. That potential can be unlocked with data-driven public policy solutions based in free market principles, individual liberty and responsibility, and effective, limited, and accountable government.
We produce research led by experts and subjected to peer-review prior to publication. To help ensure intellectual independence we do not accept government grants. All projects are designed with our central mission in mind, directed toward a 21st Century Kentucky.
