Dukakis Center for Urban & Regional Policy
Producing state-of-the-art applied research and implementing effective policies and practices based on that research
A “Think and Do” Tank
The Kitty and Michael Dukakis Center for Urban and Regional Policy, which is housed in the School of Public Policy and Urban Affairs at Northeastern University, is equally committed to producing state-of-the-art applied research and implementing effective policies and practices based on that research.
The Center’s collaborative research and problem-solving model uses powerful data analysis, multidisciplinary research and evaluation techniques, and a policy-driven perspective to address critical challenges facing urban areas. Our goal is to integrate thought and action to achieve social justice through collaborative data-driven analysis and practice. We prepare emerging practitioners and academicians to transcend the mysteries and frustrations of successful urban policy-making.
