Welcome to the Institute

.... a not-for-profit organization that was formed by a group of Alachua County citizens, including educators, business men and women, attorneys, physicians and other professionals.  It is an organization of independent thinkers without political partisanship who seek to enlighten the electorate and to offer productive, practical solutions for current community issues.  Participating members volunteer their time, energy and expertise to produce policy papers, white papers and scholarly articles to complex problems that are shared with the public and elected officials. These documents are produced through in-depth research, communication with involved parties and discussions with local elected officials.

Our mission... The creation of an informed, motivated and confident electorate by seeking accuracy, efficiency and transparency of government.
