Center for Social Policy
The following institutes are formally housed at the Center for Social Policy:
- The UNM Cradle to Career Policy Institute (Formerly CEPR)
- The UNM Native American Budget and Policy Institute (NABPI)
By harnessing the research capacities of several institutes, CSP is able to address the needs of our clients and produce research products that combine the best practices of academic research and answer the leading social policy questions facing the state of New Mexico and the wider region. Our Center specializes in conducting policy research in New Mexico through a racial/ethnic equity based framework aimed at providing policy makers with independent and rigorous data to inform their decisions.
We have a solid national and local reputation of not only conducting high quality research, but in connecting the knowledge and resources of UNM with the wider community. This has been accomplished by ensuring that our work directly involves community partners whenever possible, in the identification of research questions that advance current and projected needs, as well as the research process itself.
