The FLC Center for Municipal Research is one of the leading sources for local government research in Florida. The Center is continuously reaching out to local government researchers to join its Partners in Municipal Research Program.
Research partners will have access to the Florida League of Cities' municipal government datasets and have opportunities to collaborate with municipal government practitioners across Florida. Download Program Brochure
Through regional roundtables and statewide forums, the center brings together research institutes to discuss current interests, projects, needed datasets and future goals, as well as to identify potential research collaboration. By developing these connections, the center can enhance and learn from the institutes, and promote their research to municipal officials and others statewide. View List of Research Partners
The Center promotes the use of the data it collects to assist with research and education and is available as a resource to Partners in Municipal Research participants. The center also supports giving graduate students in-depth research opportunities on local government issues.
When students and institute faculty are seeking RFPs or input on new municipal government studies, the Center for Municipal Research can serve as a liaison to research partners in their outreach to cities. In addition, partners can submit RFPs and/or internship applications for center-directed studies and research.
