Our interdisciplinary research teams work in close partnership with stakeholders to maximize the relevance and potential value of research for decision-making. Our collaborative approach rests on a foundation of mutual respect, open communication, and a belief in the value of diverse ideas and experiences. Current stakeholder partners include tribal governments, state and federal agencies, non-governmental organizations and the private sector.
