The Institute for Policy Research and Engagement (IPRE) is an interdisciplinary organization that assists Oregon communities by providing planning and technical assistance to help solve local issues and improve the quality of life for Oregon residents. The role of IPRE is to link the skills, expertise, and innovation of secondary and higher education with the planning and policy needs of communities and regions in the State of Oregon thereby providing service to Oregon and learning to the students involved.

IPRE, the School of Planning, Public Policy and Management (PPPM), and the University of Oregon are committed to and engaged in building a culturally diverse educational and workplace environment. IPRE values a collaborative, interdisciplinary approach in our work that aims to reach and assist all cultural and ethnic backgrounds across the state of Oregon and beyond.
