Research & Impact

Bringing together research and practice for policy that makes a difference.

As a community of researchers and practitioners, we are actively engaged in the policy debates and discussions that matter today. Our faculty are publishing pioneering work that sheds light on new and overlooked issues, and leading a diverse range of projects that integrate research and practice to have real impact on policy-making. Our centers and institutes are a hub of activity, bringing together faculty, staff and students to explore new ways of thinking about and solving problems. In critical and emerging areas, our initiatives harness the strengths and resources of a top-tier public research university to new challenges. Cutting across all of the School's teaching, research and service activities, the strategic pillars bring together the many streams of our work to ensure our areas of greatest strength have the greatest impact.
