The UChicago Consortium Institutes are central to UChicago Consortium's efforts to make its research accessible to practitioners, policy makers, and other researchers, locally and nationally.

At the national level, UChicago Consortium is working with education research consortia in seven other cities to develop cross-city research projects on important topics.

At the local level, UChicago Consortium regularly convenes groups of stakeholders to discuss research findings and their implications for policy and practice.
