Key research programs include energy, the Middle East, health, Mexico studies, and innovation and entrepreneurship. The institute collaborates with experts from academia, government, the media, business, and nongovernmental and private organizations. In conjunction with its more than 20 programs, the institute attracts many domestic and foreign leaders who provide their views and insights on major issues. Speakers have included U.S. presidents and Cabinet members, world leaders and heads of government, and numerous foreign dignitaries from around the globe. To educate and engage the next generation of leaders, many Baker Institute fellows and scholars teach public policy classes.
