The IVMF conducts, funds and disseminates academic research relevant to veterans and their families, and has created and empowered a network of world-class scholars, representing academic institutions across the U.S. whose broad and extensive expertise is positioned to inform the social, economic, educational and policy issues that impact this community, and our nation.
The institute leverages the experience, expertise and networks of government, industry and NGO partners to produce actionable research positioned to advance the ability of community stakeholders, in order to effectively address the challenges impacting those who provide services and support to the veteran community.
- The IVMF publishes weekly Research Briefs on employment, education, wellness and family, and includes publications from IVMF Fellows. Each week, new research briefs are posted online, highlighting their implications for the veteran and military family communities.
- The IVMF releases policy briefs and fact sheets covering a wide range of topics on veterans, families, higher education, employment and more.
- The IVMF is implementing the National Survey of Veterans in America (NSVA), an effort designed and positioned to capture a comprehensive portrait of the post-service life course of America’s veterans and their families. The NSVA is expected to be launched in the near future and will be accessible to all veterans.
