You are here

Ready to inform today's policy debates? Looking for innovative and creative ways to amplify your research among policy-making circles? 

Two of the best in the business -- IPPSR Director Matt Grossmann and IPPSR Associate Director Arnold Weinfeld -- are sharing ways to your research in front of decisionmakers.

More than ever, policymakers are seeking contextural information combined with the facts and information critical to addressing society's greatest problems every day.

Often, they must search beyond anecdotal constituent conversations for research-based information to begin crafting, drafting, writing, passing legislation offering effective, problem-solving strategies. Researchers have an important role to play in providing that research-based information in ways that are timely and relevant to the policy making process. Add your voice -- and research.

Dr. Grossmann and Associate Director Weinfeld's recommendations include:

  • Information that policy makers at all levels of government are looking for from researchers
  • Practical guidelines for writing research briefs
  • Campus resources for applied, policy-relevant research
  • Effective strategies for connecting your scholarship to the policy-making community

This is an event inviting faculty, researchers and student scholars.
