The Institute encourages faculty, independent researchers and PhD students to conduct high quality, policy-relevant research issues. To do so, it provides seed and start-up funding for new projects, helps identify other funding sources for that research, helps scholars connect with local officials and leaders who can help scholars with their projects, and works with scholars to disseminate their findings to practitioners in timely and accessible ways.

The final findings of the research projects are published in the Institute’s journals.
