Our Impact [old]

ISPU addresses the challenges of the day by discovering data and uncovering strategies, educating a wide array of audiences, and enabling a diverse set of partners to plan, strategize and improve policies and practice.

We measure our success not in the quantity of research conducted, but rather our impact.

In 2015, ISPU…

“…Keep up the outstanding work!”

“I refer to ISPU’s American Muslim poll when I give public talks on Islamophobia. It helps to nuance the picture of American Muslims and to challenge unfair stereotypes concerning Islam’s compatibility with the U.S. Keep up the outstanding work!”

-Todd Green, Professor

“…make a meaningful difference in the lives of your community”

“I really want to urge you to read [the AME report] because it talks about the next step beyond the [AMP] research a little bit. It talks about how you can take the research that we have and apply it to make a meaningful difference in the lives of your community, and I think it’s really important.”

– Congressman Keith Ellison

“…Transformational… life changing”

“It’s been a great experience; the project I did for them was pretty transformational for me because I had never done anything like it. I learned an extreme amount. I was able to find a whole new perspective, which is life changing.”

-ISPU Scholar

“…ISPU's work is a lifesaver”

“ISPU’s work is a lifesaver. I use ISPU’s stats and data to educate a whole host of groups. Even when I meet groups skeptical of the challenges facing Muslims, ISPU’s data usually wins the day. It has helped multiple times.”

– Mohamed Shukri, Daban Consulting

“...a much more serious approach to a very real problem.”

“We had a presentation about the research back in October and that initiated the discussion. It allowed the youth council and the leaders in the community to take a much more serious approach to a very real problem.”

– Nilamudeen, MCA

“…Cutting edge”

“ISPU’s Islamophobia work is Cutting edge, part of a larger strategy, a fantastic piece of work that connected the community and people that did not know they have things in common.”

-ISPU Peer Organization

“…exactly the kind of timely and specific information we need”

“This is exactly the kind of timely and specific information we need . . .You should be (proud). If everyone could send us something like this on various Administration priorities (e.g., ACA, Climate Change, Immigration Reform, etc.), we’d be able to work many more new (to us) leaders into our events and other work.”

-Melissa Rogers, White House
