The RAND Corporation is a nonprofit institution that helps improve policy and decisionmaking through research and analysis. For more than 60 years, RAND has been expanding the boundaries of human knowledge and keeping policymakers ahead of the curve on the issues that matter most such as health and health care, education, national security, civil justice, the environment, and more. No other institution tackles tough policy problems across so broad a spectrum.

Now global in scope, RAND has made its headquarters in Santa Monica since 1948.  In 2004, RAND opened a new headquarters campus that has received numerous awards, including the Urban Land Institute Award for Excellence, and earned “Gold” Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (or LEED) certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.

The RAND headquarters campus is also home to a significant contemporary art collection. Dominating the art at RAND are works loaned by Peter Norton and Eileen Harris-Norton, well-known collectors of contemporary art whose relationship with RAND has spanned nearly two decades. The 200+ pieces are on long-term loan to RAND, and contribute to a creative, vibrant work environment for RAND’s leading thinkers.

The campus is home to more than 1,000 of RAND’s approximately 1,600 people from diverse disciplines and perspectives who collaborate to find solutions to the world’s toughest public policy problems.
