Attention: Faculty, Research Staff, Graduate Students

Monday, October 4, 2021

9:00-10:30 a.m. | Zoom


Want to inform today’s policy debates? Looking for innovative and creative ways to amplify your research in policy-making circles? Seeking new ways to share your research findings with those who are at the forefront of policy discussions?  

More than ever, policy makers are seeking contextual information along with the facts and evidence to address society’s greatest problems. Often, they must search beyond anecdotal constituent conversations for research-based information to begin crafting, drafting, writing, and passing legislation that offers 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. 

Michigan State University’s Institute for Public Policy and Social Research (IPPSR) invites faculty, research staff, and graduate students with current or planned policy-relevant research to attend this virtual workshop. 

Matt Grossman, IPPSR director, and Arnold Weinfeld, associate director, will focus on:

  • 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
