Center for Organization Research and Design

Human capital is a core facet of STEM development and progress. The Center for Organization Research and Design (CORD) focuses on fundamental research associated with public, nonprofit and hybrid organizations and examines key dynamics necessary for building and developing a productive, diverse and stable STEM workforce. Moreover, our group examines how public policy can influence the institutions and processes responsible for shaping such dynamics. 

Our core research areas are:

  • Scientific and Technical Human Capital
  • Technology Transfer
  • University Design and Performance
  • Public Managemen
  • Environmental Policy and Sustainability 

The center is directed by Barry Bozeman, a professor in the School of Public Affairs in the Watts College of Public Service and Community Solutions.
