Summary

The Crime Lab helps generate and evaluate new evidence about the benefits and costs of violence intervention strategies. The Urban Education Lab was created in 2011 as part of the University of Chicago's Urban Education Institute, with the goal of generating knowledge to improve educational outcomes for disadvantaged children growing up in some of the most distressed urban neighborhoods in America and overseas.
