Our Latest Report

Arizona's Ballot Propositions (2014)In our latest publication, “Understanding Arizona's Propositions,” Morrison Institute Senior Research Fellow David R. Berman looks at the pros and cons of three propositions (Prop 304, Prop 303, Prop 122) that will be on the November statewide ballot.

Morrison Institute Welcomes You

Welcome to the Morrison Institute for Public Policy in the College of Public Service & Community Solutions at ASU. Currently, our group of researchers is engaged in several projects studying and advising the state of Arizona with regard to past and future policy. To see more information about the mission and staff, please see the About section.

While other institutions may single out for study a particular side of an argument, Morrison Institute has developed a uniquely non-partisan model recognizing that Arizona's past and future always favors independence. Our research must cut across all boundaries of age, ethnicity, gender, economic status, and locale. That's why research undertaken by Morrison Institute addresses all sides of an issue and all those impacted by the policy enacted.

Our Seven Areas of Focus

  • WATER: Arizona and the West's water futures
  • EDUCATION: The evolving role of education in a new economy
  • GOVERNANCE: Governance, elections and voter engagement
  • DEMOGRAPHICS: The growing Latino and aging populations
  • ECONOMY: Expand, diversify and enhance trade with Mexico
  • IMMIGRATION: Economic and citizenship policy
  • HUMAN SERVICES: Health care, domestic violence, and program evaluation

The Latino Center provides nonpartisan and credible data, analysis, expertise and content to policy makers, educators, news media, business and community leaders for better-informed decisions regarding Arizona’s changing demographics.
