UC Berkeley’s Center for Cities + Schools is an interdisciplinary, action-research center, linking the fields of city planning and K–12 education. They advance policies and practices that create opportunity-rich environments, both in and out of schools, where young people of all backgrounds can thrive.
At the Center for Cities + Schools (CC+S), their approach is deeply collaborative, relying on partnerships that are intergenerational, interdisciplinary, and mutually beneficial. They focus on two primary areas of work: K–12 civic youth engagement and public policy research. These strategies complement and inform one another, providing a holistic approach to improving the lives of young people.
