SCHOLAR-ADVOCATE-MATCH (SAM)

 

“Scholars”—professors, graduate students, and other researchers—know their research could have real-world impact.

“Advocates”— attorneys, policy analysts, community experts — know their work could be improved by research.

If academe and advocacy had a meeting of the minds, how might they improve policy and practice? What if access to research, data, and advocacy came together more quickly?

SO MANY ISSUES, SO MANY MINDS TO MATCH

Housing, health, education, environment, medicine, workforce, art, culture, community development, criminal justice, access to justice, science and technology — these are just some of the topics scholars and advocates are already working on to make a real world difference on the challenges affecting communities.
