Our Process / Research

With a team of staff and student research analysts, we gather and analyze information to guide strategy and project development.

We explore emerging issues and trends, social change, best practices and potential partners from private, public or social sectors. The research team vets new ideas using a rigorous process that involves:

Research Cycle

  • Identifying research needs
  • Exploring research needs in-depth to reach topical saturation
  • Analyzing topics while looking for partnership opportunities and synergies
  • Connecting initiatives and research topics in an actionable manner

Student strategic research analysts are the backbone of the research team, consistently producing high quality research. UI hires high-achieving, intellectually curious undergraduate and graduate students who enjoy working in a fast-paced, collaborative environment. Recent research analyst alumni have continued to a variety of exciting jobs upon graduation from ASU.
