We measure impact in empty plates at BBQs and full seats at research seminars, but we also make ripples in the world through student development, media engagements, high level briefings, academic publications, and reports. We apply rigorous academic research to real-world problems while training the next generation of decision-makers to think creatively and critically about the world.

Our research influences policy decisions in diverse fields, including public health and foreign aid. Our researchers provide public commentary and high-level briefings, shaping public thought on key contemporary issues. And our students, who learn from our teaching-through-research model, go on to become engaged global citizens, public servants, and leaders.
