Mitchell Instutute

The Mitchell Institute's fundamental objective is to provide creative, insightful policy options to better empower our nation's leaders. Quite often this involves questioning established doctrine, organizational constructs, and operational concepts, asking whether there is a better way to meet desired goals.
