Recognizing the world is facing enormous, undeniable problems related to poverty reduction, inequality, climate change, international economics, disruptive technologies, the spread of infectious disease, globalization, international terrorism, organized crime, and peace and security, the Think to DO Institute selects the most challenging of these worldwide problems that, when addressed, will lead to the best solutions for the local community-at-large.

The Institute’s products, after its inauguration in the Fall of 2018, will include white papers, policy models, community forums, leadership training forums, and mobilization of expertise to influence the policy-making process.

The Institute serves also as a kind of “Clearinghouse” focused on its research areas thereby striving to comprehensively document the nature and scope of the data of the Institute and its networks, while identifying processes that enhance the ability of researchers, the community and policymakers to leverage the data for informed decision-making.
