The Global Research Institute was founded when students asked tough research questions and worked with faculty mentors to create new knowledge. Investing in students is a GRI priority and innovation funding is one way we’re doing this. Examples of student-led research projects include developing a methodology to track Chinese investments, designing and implementing a survey about agriculture microinsurance in Kenya, and conducting analysis to better counter disinformation practices.
Recent student innovation projects are featured below. Who knows? You may just be reading about a future GRI research lab!
