Research and Learning Series 

Information developed and shared as part of our Research and Learning Series works to create a platform for new ideas and additional perspectives across a variety of sectors. It is an opportunity for individuals and organizations to discuss relevant issues impacting efforts for social change and to participate in a public learning environment. The biannual ISC Research and Learning Summit brings together researchers, students and practitioners to share new perspectives on social change issues.
