The Maxwell School Center for Policy Research (CPR) conducts a broad range of interdisciplinary research and other activities related to public policy, involving graduate students as assistants and junior colleagues. The Center includes faculty from several departments within the Maxwell School, mainly Economics, Public Administration, and Sociology. This collection of specialists brings a depth of experience and skill to research. 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. CPR is the home of the Education Finance and Accountability Program (EFAP) and houses the Lerner Center for Public Health Promotion and the Maxwell X Lab.
