When it comes to think tanks, RAND might be the brainiest. Founded in 1948, RAND Corporation is one of the leading public policy research institutions in the US, offering analysis and research in such areas as education, health care, national security, science and technology, and transportation. Its staff of more than 950 scientists and researchers offer their insights primarily to government policy makers, but RAND also serves private businesses and international organizations. The not-for-profit enterprise traces its roots to Project RAND, a research group formed during WWII by Douglas Aircraft (later McDonnell Douglas and now part of Boeing) to provide technical guidance to the military.
The University of California at Berkeley has been organic from the beginning. UC Berkeley was created by the state's Organic Act of 1868, merging a private college and a land-grant institution. From modest East Bay beginnings came a world-class university that grew world-famous in the 1960s from the Free Speech Movement on campus, and for the social activism that still defines many of its students today. The 2,000 members of the faculty include eight Nobel laureates, four Pulitzer Prize winners, and 32 MacArthur Fellows (the "genius awards"). UC Berkeley, also known as Cal Berkeley, annually educates about 25,500 undergraduates and some 10,300 graduate students. Its student-teacher ratio is 15:1.
