IPR Experts Turn Research Excellence
into Policy Impact

Each year, the White House Council of Economic Advisers (CEA) releases the "Economic Report of the President" to Congress. The 2023 report cited research by seven IPR faculty in economics, finance, psychology, and strategy 14 times across the 507-page report.

While a CEA report is likely one of the highest-profile research-driven reports in U.S. policymaking, IPR studies also frequently find their way into school districts and state legislatures, national agencies and international NGOs.
