Innovation for Institutional Impact
IPI’s commitment to innovative research and best practices in public service enables staff to advance policy and public administration research to assist leaders in informed decision-making. IPI often pioneers non-traditional reporting techniques and platforms to make data and research impactful, available and accessible.
Message from SPS Associate Dean Andrew Giacomazzi
“It’s simply amazing to see how Idaho Policy Institute has grown and flourished over the past years. IPI’s simple idea, consistent with the mission of the School of Public Service, is to provide objective research and help support decision-makers. To that end, the Institute has become a trusted resource for public, private, and nonprofit entities throughout Idaho and beyond. Since its inception, IPI has worked with countless leaders from multiple sectors – through research and technical assistance – to aid them in using evidence-based practices to overcome challenges and navigate change. When I think of the public service mission of Boise State University, I think of Idaho Policy Institute!”
