IVMF research anchors the Institute’s programs and services and empowers government, private industry, higher education, and philanthropic organizations to effectively address today’s toughest challenges facing the veteran and military community.
We advance policy, programmatic, and community action. Our independent and sponsored nonpartisan research identifies gaps in knowledge, policy, and practice, and delivers action-oriented solutions for our partners. We drive the Institute and our partner organizations’ use of data and evidence-based decision making through tailored measurement and evaluation support.
Our strengths lie in continuous engagement with the veteran and military community and a robust, multi-disciplinary network of experts and practitioners across the Syracuse University campus and beyond. Our diverse research partners span the public, private, and social sectors and our field research has taken us to college campuses, local communities, businesses, military installations, and government offices coast-to-coast.
