Haas Center

Haas Staff

The UWF Haas Center supports the region and the state with workforce and survey research, economic impact modeling, and industrial innovation. We partner with UWF students, faculty, and external experts to deliver optimal results to our customers. We tell stories centered around economic data and human experience.

We provide textured, meaningful analysis to an array of customers from the public and non-profit sectors to private industry, including manufacturing. Immersive public laboratories, like Sea3D in Pensacola’s Historic District, showcase what is possible when creative minds intersect with business and workforce partners.
Our market research covers a variety of topics, including economic impact studies, consumer and visitor profiles, as well as research on talent gaps. Our researchers and performance advisors collaborate to bring objective and reliable information to all customers.
