The Research Alliance collaborates with policymakers, educators, and scholars from diverse disciplines and a wide variety of institutions, including the NYC Public Schools, various universities, and youth-serving nonprofits. These relationships help ensure the relevance of our work and allow us to dedicate our resources to a more comprehensive body of high-quality research.

We look to collaborate on projects that align with our mission and core organizational principles, including:

  • High standards of scientific rigor
  • Relevance to the real needs of NYC students, schools and policymakers;
  • A commitment to independence and nonpartisanship;
  • A commitment to equity and diversity; and
  • A focus on New York City (or multi-city studies that include NYC).
