AISR collaborates with the Education Department at Brown University to offer the Urban Education Policy (UEP) master’s degree program. Both the UEP courses and AISR program work have been enriched by significant interconnections between the two. For their capstone projects, students work in teams of four to examine a specific research priority in collaboration with a local or national education or youth development organization. 

Visit the UEP blog to learn more about the latest happenings and upcoming events in the UEP program.
