The University-chartered Center for Public Health and Education Policy provides a venue where faculty, students, and community members can participate jointly to produce evidence-based policy analysis in the areas of public health and education. The Center’s work focuses on generating, researching, and disseminating relevant, solutions-oriented ideas. The goal of the work is to inform policymakers, advocates, researchers, practitioners, and others as they address public health and education issues at the national, state, and local levels.
With a mission to provide tools and expertise that support creating, synthesizing, and translating research into practice and policy, the center stands at the crossroads of knowledge generation and implementation and serves as a continuous resource for health and education professionals and policymakers. Initiatives Include:
Policy Leadership and Advocacy: A series of multi-stakeholder forums focused on public health or education policies posing barriers to traditionally underserved populations.
