Future Institute Research Center

Who We Are

     The Future Institute Research Center, in partnership with the University of Northern Iowa and Future Institute, 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.

     The Center fosters an environment in which all research fellows do their best work strengthened and enriched by different perspectives, backgrounds, and experiences through a commitment to:

  • 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,
  • Increase our potential, effectiveness, and creativity as a research center by offering the broadest possible range of approaches to addressing issues and solving problems, and hold ourselves to high standards of ethics and integrity.

Future Institute Research Center is led by its own voluntary director and research fellows composed of college professors. All research funds are raised independently by the Center.
