OSU Policy Analysis Laboratory

OPAL is currently providing opportunities for graduate students to conduct research on real world policy problems in fields such as education, energy, climate change, and disaster response. Students use the quantitative and qualitative skills they have learned in class to provide support to clients facing substantive issues in the policy world.

Our current projects address several different policy areas and bring community clients, students and researchers together. This web site also provides a record of our past work and lists policy briefs and research papers.

If you are a potential client, you are welcome to submit a research request.

If you are a student and want to get involved, you may consider to apply to a policy team.

We are happy to answer any questions you might have - please feel free to contact us.
