Research. Data. Facilitated decision-making. 

The IU Public Policy Institute delivers unbiased research and data-driven, objective, expert analysis to help public, private and nonprofit sectors make important decisions that directly impact quality of life in Indiana and throughout the nation.

Using the knowledge and expertise of our staff and faculty, we provide research and analysis that is free of political and ideological bias. With no agenda other than helping leaders, citizens, businesses and organizations solve problems, seize opportunities and effect positive change, our Expert Team can address a wide range of issues and deliver the data and insights needed to make informed decisions. A multidisciplinary institute within the Indiana University School of Public and Environmental Affairs (SPEA), our efforts also support the Indiana Advisory Commission on Intergovernmental Relations (IACIR).
