Never too early to start: Training graduate students for policy work.

Research can be used to develop empirically informed policy solutions to our most pressing public problems. However, research is all too often left out of the public policymaking conversation. Researchers can change this, by learning how to engage and collaborate with policymakers. In this article, we present and adapt a conceptual framework from the field of community psychology—Kelly’s (1971) “Qualities for a Community Psychologist”—to provide insight into training graduate students for policy engagement.
