Center for Public Partnerships & Research (CPPR)


"CPPR center logo"

We partner with communities and organizations—like state agencies, non-profits, coalitions, and local service providers—to create a happy and healthy world where families thrive. Our partners turn to us to problem solve, use data for good, and develop and leverage relationships to transform the system.

We are educators, social workers, scientists, psychologists, and sociologists and our work lies at the intersection of research, policy, and practice. With expertise in program evaluation, systems change, navigating bureaucratic constraints, data science and social innovation, we focus on healing the system we have and reimagining the system we want—healthy, happy, thriving communities for us all.
