Morrison Institute for Public Policy

A trusted voice of balance and fairness

While other institutions may single out for study a particular side of an argument, the Morrison Institute has developed a uniquely nonpartisan model recognizing that Arizona's past and future always favor independence. Our research cuts 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.
