The Rustandy Center for Social Sector Innovation supports research at Chicago Booth and beyond focused on understanding how the social sector operates. Then, we share our findings with people tackling big problems, in hopes of making their work more effective.
We believe that social innovation research can yield insights that will transform the sector and increase the odds of solving seemingly intractable problems. We also recognize that people on the ground, many with decades of experience, possess invaluable knowledge in the fight for a better world. We are committed to bringing these two communities together, sharing lessons from research with experts on the ground and vice versa.
