Mission and Objectives

Driving thought leadership

Since 1998, leaders in the education, nonprofit and public sectors have turned to the TIAA Institute for the objective, actionable information to make better, more informed decisions. Through our research, convenings, award programs and collaborations, we build and share knowledge in two primary areas:

Financial Security: Retirement plan design, lifetime income and retirement security, behavioral finance, financial literacy and capability and wellness

Higher Education: Academic workforce trends and issues, higher education leadership, innovation and financial sustainability

The insights surfaced through our work help advance real-world solutions to complex problems.
