Our Capabilities

Why Us?

IVMF’s research team brings decades of diverse research and evaluation experience across the fields of education, organizational psychology, public policy, public health and epidemiology, non-profit management, and sociology. Our fellows are in-residence, emerging scholars who bring unique research skills and a passion for research on veterans and military to our work.

Syracuse University’s top strategic goal is to provide all students with a world-class learning experience that prepares them for future success. Our research team is committed to not simply include students in our work, but rather develop their analytical, professional, and leadership skills so that they leave SU with a competitive edge in the workplace and a better appreciation for those who serve our nation.

Throughout the year, more than a dozen of Syracuse University’s most talented students play active roles in our research. From undergraduates to future Ph.D.’s, these valued team members represent a diverse range of degrees and majors such as business administration, computer science, communications, child and family studies, marriage and family therapy, public administration, policy studies, information studies, social work, and sociology.
