At Analyst Institute, our goal is for all progressive, civic engagement, and social justice programming to be informed by rigorous evidence.

We drive innovation and advance community knowledge to ensure all people powering these movements, regardless of background, understand what the evidence tells us — and apply it to their work.

Analyst Institute’s services span the full research-to-practice pipeline, including:

  • Partnering with allied organizations to investigate key questions and advance learning,
  • Sharing what we’ve learned from more than 800 research projects through our community hub,
  • Advising allies on implementing evidence-based practices, and
  • Convening a wide audience to address knowledge gaps and allow stakeholders to learn from one another.

We exist because groups across the left are committed to doing better work now, learning for the future, and empowering others with their findings.
