Center for Advancing Research to Practice

National service has the potential to close the research-to-practice gap. Each year, individuals commit billions of hours toward improving their communities. This is a massive resource that can be aligned with best practices from research to make a real, profound impact.  

The evidence-base for national service is growing, but better progress is needed.  

ServeMinnesota's Center for Advancing Research-to-Practice is uniquely positioned at the nexus of research and service. Its mission is to ensure national service is an effective solution to complex social problems.
