About the PRASC Lab

The Policy Research & Systems Change (PRASC) Lab is a team of multi-disciplinary research scientists, associates, and staff who address complex societal problems through data analysis, policy research, training/education, and systems change methodologies, including collective impact.
Housed at the Social Science Research Center (SSRC), PRASC projects mobilize the multifaceted resources of the SSRC to address issues of early childhood, structural inequities, the environment, public health, and education, among others.
