Kinder Institute for Urban Research

Building Better Cities, Building Better Lives at the Kinder Institute Luncheon

No city more closely epitomizes the changes in the country’s social and political landscape than Houston. The Kinder Institute for Urban Research works to arm industry and political leaders along with Houston citizens with the information necessary to implement meaningful solutions to critical urban issues facing our region. For more than three decades, Rice University’s “Kinder Houston Area Survey” has been measuring the continuities and changes in the perceptions and experiences of successive representative samples of Harris County adults. Through intensive interviews reaching more than 45,000 Houston area residents, year after year the surveys have been tracking the trends in life experiences, attitudes and beliefs during a period of remarkable economic and demographic change in the Houston region.

Each year, the Kinder Institute holds its annual Kinder Institute Luncheon to share the results of the Kinder Houston Area Survey presented by Dr. Stephen L. Klineberg, Founding Director, Rice University’s Kinder Institute for Urban Research Professor of Sociology. At the luncheon, Jeffrey C. Hines, President, and CEO of Hines was also presented with the 2019 Stephen L. Klineberg Award for his incredible contributions to our community. VISION was honored to work with the Kinder Institute as a Production Partner to produce the live event to showcase this important work as a Champion of Houston and to help create an experience that lives ON for the 1,700 people in attendance, the Houston region, and generations to come.
