Distinguished Fellows

Morrison Institute's Distinguished Fellows Program

The title and role of Distinguished Fellow was created in July 2012 as a way to utilize the institutional knowledge and innovative thinking of Arizona leaders. Sometimes that may mean background or input on a certain issue or research project; other times, it might be an invitation to a roundtable discussion or placing select published works on Morrison Institute’s website.
