Want to help inform today’s policy debates? Wonder how you can share your research outcomes with people who are at the forefront of policy discussions?
Policy makers face problems every day without having contextual information or other facts to effectively address them. Often, they must search beyond anecdotal constituent conversations for research-based information to begin building effective, problem-solving strategies.
This session is for MSU faculty who are engaged in policy-relevant research and are looking for ways to communicate their work to decision makers in state capitols. Organized by the Institute for Public Policy and Social Research (IPPSR), this workshop focuses on what policy makers look for from researchers, guidelines for writing research briefs, campus resources for applied research, and effective strategies for connecting your scholarship to the policy-making community. Presenters and guest speakers include IPPSR director Matt Grossmann and staff, an MSU faculty research panel, and a member of the Michigan legislature.
