There are significant policy challenges in our society that need to be informed by evidence-based research. Public affairs research provides important insights into critical domestic issues—from urban planning and design to environmental policy and human services. Such research, while highly relevant and much needed in the policy arena, is frequently published in journals inaccessible to those outside of academia. When vital policy research fails to reach lawmakers, practitioners, and the broader public, higher education falls short of its public mission. Civios aims to change that.

An initiative of the Humphrey School of Public Affairs, Civios offers short and visually engaging digital materials—podcasts, videos, and mixed media—that translate complex policy research to inform public affairs discussions. Through Civios researchers provide real-world context for their work and explore potential policy implications and questions.
