Palm Center Merges with Williams Institute

Post to Twitter

The Palm Center, which was formerly known as the Center for the Study of Sexual Minorities in the Military and has been a leader in research regarding the federal government’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy, has announced that it is merging with the Williams Institute at UCLA. As the post on Metroweekly’s poligot observes, this merger makes sense given the imminent demise of DADT. The Williams Institute has a much broader spectrum of LGBT-related issues that it covers, and the Palm Center has apparently revised the description of its mission in keeping with that broader focus: “The Palm Center is a research institute committed to sponsoring state-of-the-art scholarship to enhance the quality of public dialogue about critical and controversial issues of the day.”

I hope that this partnership works out well and that they all continue to produce great work on LGBT-related issues.
