Welcome to an impact-oriented research community

Beyond the Academy is a network of researchers dedicated to addressing real-world problems with impactful research. We believe that to face pressing and complex sustainability issues, academic institutions must encourage:

  • interdisciplinary partnerships within and beyond academic settings
  • adoption of new metrics to capture the impact of academic research in real-world settings
  • problem-oriented projects co-developed with communities and end users
  • graduate student success in interdisciplinary endeavors
