Kaplan Center for Research on Urban Education
The Kaplan Center for Research on Urban Education has been renamed this past summer to reflect, honor the lifework and vision of Dr. Leonard Kaplan, an uncompromising advocate for the social and affective well-being of the "whole child" in America's schools. The Kaplan Center will carry forward his legacy by producing high-quality and interdisciplinary locally-relevant research for community organizations, educational stakeholders, regional education reporters, educational policy makers, and peer-reviewed journals.
A founding principle of the Kaplan Center is our belief that university faculty have a responsibility, as public servants, to enrich public dialogue in support of the public good.
