Land Policy Institute

At the core of the mission of the Land Policy Institute (LPI) is to resource policy makers at the federal, state, and local level with science-based tools and solutions that help build a better quality of life, strengthen the economy, and protect the environment in ways that are fair to all. The Institute is fundamentally committed to Michigan. Recognizing that land use policies are pivotal to the state’s success, we engage scientists from MSU, other universities in Michigan, and universities outside Michigan to develop strategies and policy tools to position Michigan for the future based on the principles of strategic growth.
