The Center continues to provide perspectives on the history of Maryland. The occasional paper series offers advisory board members, professors, and other academics a chance to explore various aspects of Maryland’s democratic history, ranging from the 1600s to present day.

The Patuxent Policy Group, a collaboration of The Patuxent Partnership and the Center for the Study of Democracy, regularly hosts experts at St. Mary’s College of Maryland on current issues facing the Maryland community, such as The Role of STEM Programs for Educating Maryland’s 21st Century Workforce, and the Consequences of Robotic Progress for Society, Markets and U.S. Defense. The white papers organize and summarize the main themes that emerged from policy discussions and then share these with community leaders.
