Who We Are
The Scholars Strategy Network is an organization of university-based scholars who are committed to using research to improve policy and strengthen democracy. Through strategic connections and communications, SSN is reshaping the way policy is made.
We Are Voluntary
University-based scholars join the Scholars Strategy Network to volunteer their time and knowledge to solve public problems.
We Are In The States
As a federated network, SSN has over 30 chapters across 26 states, designed to provide state and federal policymakers with research perspectives from their own communities.
We Are Defined by Impact
Researchers in SSN work with three key partners: civic leaders, policymakers, and journalists. By understanding the goals and challenges facing these partners, SSN is focused on impact from the start.
We Are Four Communities, One Vision
Across its diverse chapters and members, SSN’s vision remains constant: improving policy and strengthening democracy with research and evidence.
