External Research Requests

As research and evaluation are critical tools to reach a thriving lāhui, these practices should flourish within and beyond KS. This involves expanding the pool of practitioners who are empowered to conduct, disseminate, and use findings in ethically, culturally, and organizationally responsible ways.

To assist with potential primary data collection efforts involving KS constituents, the Strategy & Transformation Group has developed procedures for gaining approval for non-KS initiated research and evaluation studies. Please note that the review process can take up to 6 weeks, so we kindly ask requestors to plan accordingly.

Please view the short video and download the guidance materials below for more information.
