Collaborators

The Research Alliance regularly plans and executes projects with researchers from NYU, other universities, and other research organizations. These collaborations allow us to dedicate our resources to a more comprehensive body of rigorous research.

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

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

The following is a list of our current and former research collaborators.
