Research. Data. Facilitated decision-making.

The Indiana University Public Policy Institute produces high-quality applied research and data analysis for leaders to effect positive change and a better quality of life in their community.

Our faculty, researchers, and analysts partner with community leaders and organizations to deliver policy guidance, unbiased research and data-driven, objective, expert analysis to help public, private and nonprofit sectors in Indiana and throughout the nation make important decisions that directly impact quality of life.

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).
