The Institute for Work and the Economy is an independent, not-for-profit public policy research collaborative under the direction of a national board of directors. The mission of the Institute is to recognize and address emerging issues in workforce and economic development policy and to develop novel solutions and strategies for resolving structural problems facing local and regional economies.
The Institute is staffed full-time by its President and Executive Director and involves a network of fellows from workforce and economic development. Our design is to work in multi-institutional collaborations on all projects. Consequently, we maintain only a core staff to cover business operations.
