Informing the field of collaborative governance


Group collaborating at table

We identify best practices by researching collaborative governance in action

We research collaborative governance practices by evaluating the results of our collaboration projects, and developing and testing innovative approaches for consensus-seeking, problem solving, and governance. Faculty, students, and other researchers have access to these same projects for research purposes.
