We’re committed to conducting inventive research—work that informs solutions to complex social problems and promotes the common good.
Graduate and undergraduate students can research alongside our world-renowned faculty, whose expansive initiatives improve communities and influence local, national, and international education and policy. As they put their analysis into action, faculty members help guide students’ growth as critical thinkers, reflective leaders, and engaged citizens.
At the heart of Lynch School research is one goal: direct application to improve schools, communities, and lives. By putting scholarship into practice, our students and faculty help disrupt inequality and enhance the lives of children, families, and adults—right here in Boston, across the United States, and around the world.
