Member Scholars

The Center for Progressive Reform consists of a full-time staff and more than 50 Member Scholars who volunteer their time to support and provide independent policy research, advocacy, congressional testimony, legal insight and analysis, and more.

Our Scholars represent dozens of colleges and universities in every region of the country. They live and work in big cities and small towns, on the coasts and in the heartland, and in about half the states — including blue, purple, and red ones.

Professor Rob Verchick

In September, using his new book as a backdrop, Rob spoke to the podcast History Behind News on the history of floods, their disparate economic and racial impact, when the federal government got involved in flood prevention policies—what it did right, and what it did horribly wrong—and what we can all do right going forward.
