Mission & Vision



The mission of the Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation is to promote, undertake, and evaluate activities, studies, and programs that improve individual and public health, welfare, and safety. In support of this mission, we create and support an environment within which skilled, innovative, and dedicated researchers and practitioners work to expand and disseminate knowledge.


The synergy between PIRE’s attractive organizational culture and our growing base of talent and expertise will spark creative collaboration across the Institute and invite strategic and productive partnerships with others. The resulting creative output will dramatically advance prevention science and practice and fulfill the promise latent within PIRE of producing a truly significant positive impact on community and national well-being.
