Expertise

MSRC provides the expertise, resources, facilities, and staff for services designed to fit specific needs. For example, we can assist in developing research questions, selecting the most appropriate research design, determining appropriate populations, samples, and sample sizes, determining the most appropriate data collection method, collecting, analyzing, and interpreting data, and in determining the implications of results. Our services include telephone surveys, internet-based surveys, mailed questionnaires, and various types of interviews, or some combination of the above, depending on client need.  

Staff and affiliated faculty hold graduate degrees in law, social work, criminology, geography, political science, sociology, psychology, and public administration and have research experience with a wide variety of subject populations, including prisoners, adolescents, older adults, teachers, business owners, recovering substance abusers, victims of intimate partner violence, and parents of children with special education needs.

MSRC has assisted with research ranging from attitudinal surveys on politics and local current events to more in-depth interviews concerning health behaviors to extremely sensitive, personal questions regarding drug abuse, race relations, domestic violence, and sexual practices. Most recently, MSRC assisted the University of Memphis Faculty Senate with a Faculty Survey of Administrators that provided the university community with information regarding faculty opinions and attitudes toward Deans, the Provost, and the President.
