About Us

Our mission is to advance knowledge of the social, political, economic and environmental processes and conditions that enable people and societies to develop their full potential, living long, healthy, meaningful, and productive lives in community with others. The Institute supports critical cutting-edge research through fostering the engagement and collaboration of a multidisciplinary team of faculty, practitioners, and students.  ISID’s academic programs aim to train a new generation of passionate and innovative future leaders in the skills they need to conduct rigorous, normative and evidence-based analysis of the concepts, policies, and practices of international development.  Through extensive outreach programs that aim to build bridges between academic researchers, international development policymakers and practitioners, and affected communities, ISID strives to create and communicate knowledge that contributes to understanding and solving real world development challenges.
