Universities like ours are unique because they pursue research, education, and public service at a very high level across nearly every field of human endeavor. They help our society stay poised to identify opportunities and address problems we don’t know we have yet. At a time when residential higher education and publicly funded research both face skepticism, research universities must find new ways to address an uncertain future by developing creative capabilities in the public interest at scale. The Barger Leadership Institute (BLI) and the Institute for Research on Innovation and Science (IRIS) represent two efforts to address this challenge.
