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 projects address several different policy areas and bring community clients, students and researchers together. Click here to learn more about some of earlier policy briefs and research papers.

If you are a potential client or a student wishing to get involved, please email OPAL Director Mark Edwards (
