To further the mission of The Walter Rand Institute for Public Affairs, we seek the collaboration of faculty on campus. We expect collaboration to be mutually beneficial: faculty have content expertise and technical skills that will be useful to WRI, and WRI has data sets, staff resources, and community partnerships that will be useful to faculty.  Our contracted research, which is usually applied in nature and local in scope, often has broader theoretical and academic significance that remains unexplored. Similarly, faculty focused on academic publication may lack the resources to explore the applied aspects of their work. By partnering with faculty, we hope to maximize the impact of campus and Institute research. Below we describe two distinct structures for collaboration, and we invite interested faculty to reach out to the Faculty Director (Sarah Allred, for more information.
