Urban Policy Expert and Scholar Adam Millsap to Join Charles Koch Institute

The Charles Koch Institute announced today that Adam Millsap, assistant director of Florida State University’s L. Charles Hilton Jr. Center, is now a visiting fellow and will join the organization full time in June. In these roles, Millsap will help guide the Institute’s vision, strategy and research priorities on economic opportunity.

“We are excited to partner with Adam in this capacity,” said Derek Johnson, Executive Director of the Charles Koch Institute. “Adam is one of the most exciting young scholars exploring how urban policy, population trends, and labor markets affect an individuals’ ability to innovate and find meaningful work. He shares the Institute’s commitment to identifying and breaking down barriers that prevent individuals from improving their lives and communities. We are thrilled to have his counsel.”

Millsap has provided expert testimony on economic policy and is a Forbes contributor whose work also has been featured in USA Today, US News & World Report, CityLab, and Real Clear Policy. The title of Millsap’s first book, under contract with The Ohio State University Press, is Dayton: The Rise, Decline, and Transition of an Industrial City.

Millsap holds undergraduate degrees in economics and comparative religion from Miami University and earned his master’s degree and PhD in economics at Clemson University. He serves as an affiliated scholar at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University.

Through research grants, educational events, and public engagement, the Charles Koch Institute supports conversations about how to increase the ability of Americans to succeed, contribute to their communities, and live meaningful lives—regardless of their starting point.
