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 extend the leading edges of their respective fields.


The synergy between PIRE’s attractive organizational culture and our growing base of talent and expertise yields creative collaboration across the Institute and invites strategic and productive partnerships with others. The resulting creative advances in prevention science and practice empower PIRE to improve both community and national well-being.
