U-M launches Youth Policy Lab to improve young lives

Researchers at the University of Michigan have launched a new lab designed to help state and local agencies, social service providers, nonprofits and educators improve life outcomes for Michigan youth, from birth through age 25.

The Youth Policy Lab is a hands-on initiative to support the growing demand for rigorous evidence about the likely outcomes of proposed policy interventions.

A partnership between U-M’s Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy and the Survey Research Center at U-M’s Institute of Social Research, the Youth Policy Lab is led by Education Policy Initiative co-directors Brian Jacob and Susan Dynarski as well as SRC’s associate research professor Robin Tepper Jacob.
