Morrison Institute Welcomes You

Welcome to the Morrison Institute for Public Policy 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.

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.

Latino Public Policy Center

The Latino Center was launched in 2012 to help clarify the impact of Latino-related issues, public policy and trends on Arizona’s collective future. 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.
