In July 1988, the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia, created the A.L. Burruss Institute of Public Service and Research. To achieve the University President's goal of "commitment to community," the Institute embarked on an ambitious plan to reach city, county, regional, state, and federal agencies and elected officials, as well as non-profit and community service organizations, by providing technical assistance and applied research services in a diversity of areas ranging from gerontology to lake management studies within North Atlanta and Northwest Georgia.

The structure of the Institute is flexible, making it especially sensitive and responsive to the needs of its clients. The A.L. Burruss Institute of Public Service and Research draws upon the expertise of the academic departments of Kennesaw State University by providing opportunities for many faculty, from diverse research fields, to participate in applied research projects on an as-needed basis. Similarly, Kennesaw State University students, serving as student assistants, interns, co-ops and as interviewers in the Telephone Survey Research Laboratory, have contributed experience in day-to-day operations at the Institute or at government agencies and community organizations. The Institute's staff also has extensive community involvement of its own, taking part in many voluntary programs of government agencies, the juvenile court system, chambers of commerce and civic organizations, often speaking to these groups, advising them and sharing in their enterprises.
