A brief description of the innovative policy, practice, program, or outcome that outlines how credit criteria are met and any positive measurable outcomes associated with the innovation:

Utah State University is building new pathways to engage policy makers with important research in land, water, and air. The institute is an interdisciplinary initiative designed by President Noelle Cockett to bring together two critical discussion spaces—USU’s research programs and state, county, and city governments—to create a positive impact for Utah. To strengthen that connection, the institute reports directly to the Office of the President and collaborates closely with the Office of Research and the Vice President for Federal and State Relations.

The mission is to bring together USU land, water, and air researchers and connects them with Utah problem solvers.
