Research and evaluation activities within the Urban Child Study Center focus specifically on the triumphs and challenges that children experience while living in urban areas. We believe that healthy, successful children emerge when families, schools, and communities work together. Therefore, the Center’s activities are interdisciplinary, and representative of the most pressing issues facing children today. We strive to create lasting research-practice partnerships that bridge the divide between research and practice, contributing directing to our partners’ efforts to both “know” and “do” what works on behalf of children. We invite you to learn more about some of the Center’s ongoing research and evaluation activities.
