Critical Research

GSD_Freeman headshot_140811_sq

Our pedagogy and research go hand in hand. Two research centers, five research initiatives, and eight design research labs are currently creating a critical mass of inquiry at the GSD. Whether studying social mobility in Tanzania or disaster relief in Haiti, GSD researchers are impacting policy and practice around the world.

  • Establish an endowed position for the Director of Research to provide critical strategic leadership for the School’s research agenda.
  • Create an endowed fund to support a full-time research fellowship, which enables the GSD to extend its impact through an evolving set of research projects.
  • Provide a current-use research fund that supports multi-year research priorities and projects. Opportunities start at $100K annually.
