Research Support Services

Throughout its history, SWS has partnered with other organizations, particularly at universities, to carry out projects. These partnerships often involve SWS working outside of the state the university is located in, and include surveys, observations and interviews. SWS often works with grant funded programs which require rapid responses to funder’s evaluation or data needs. SWS has a consistent record of meeting time-sensitive needs with high quality standards on a tight time frame under pressure. Put our experience and flexibility to work for you.
