Our Faculty

Pardee RAND professors not only bring their academic minds to the classroom but provide students with unmatched learning, training, and mentoring opportunities. Our students work alongside the faculty on RAND projects, for actual clients, with real impact. Philanthropic contributions help Pardee RAND recruit and retain talented professors and support them as they translate classroom lessons into real-world applications that benefit and improve our world.

Our Facilities

With donor support, we aim to update Pardee RAND's facilities to encourage more interaction and engagement among and between our students and faculty members. Learning continues long after students leave the classroom. By designing and constructing new study spaces and areas for collaboration and innovation, we can foster deeper learning and connections throughout the organization.
