Future Institute Research Center

Who We Are

     The Future Institute Research Center, a branch of Future Institute at Concept Schools and in partnership with the University of Northern Iowa, plans and conducts rigorous research in maximizing college and career transition success, disseminates the findings leading to data driven decision making and supports graduate student research. Research is conducted by a national team of highly qualified research fellows focused on transition, college and career success.

  • attract and retain highly qualified researchers and scholars
  • be open and receptive to a variety of different perspectives in conducting and disseminating the findings of our research,
