UC Berkeley’s Center for Cities + Schools is an interdisciplinary, action-research center, linking the fields of city planning and K-12 education.
We advance policies and practices that create opportunity-rich environments, both in and out of schools, where young people of all backgrounds can thrive.
Y-PLAN is our award-winning, civic youth engagement strategy, which brings young people into the heart of city planning projects.
We identify and advance policies to improve public school facilities so that all students can learn in healthy, opportunity-rich environments.
UC Berkeley graduate student fellows conduct high-quality research on how to best promote opportunity for young people, both in and out of school.
CC+S is expanding its research scope to include unhoused student policy, education workforce housing, and healthy school food.
