The Maxwell School Center for Policy Research (CPR), established in 1994, encompasses the Metropolitan Studies and Aging Studies programs of the Maxwell School, established in 1961 and 1990 respectively. It is also the administrative home of the Lerner Center and the Upstate Health Research Network. CPR’s primary goal is to bring scholars from across the Maxwell School, those with different disciplinary perspectives and training, to conduct research that addresses our most pressing social concerns. We believe this interdisciplinary approach can provide the most comprehensive assessment of many social problems thereby serving as a resource to policymakers, allowing them to make informed decisions.
