The Broad Center

Transformative leadership for public education

The Broad Center at Yale School of Management  fosters the ideas, policies, and leadership to help all students – particularly those from underserved communities – to learn and thrive. Our work is bolstered and enriched by the Broad Network, a nationwide community of nearly 900 dedicated and diverse leaders who are alumni of TBC programs.

Leadership Development

Developing School System Leaders in Large Urban K-12 Public Schools

TBC at Yale SOM is home to a Master’s Degree in Public Education Management and the Fellowship for Public Education Leadership. These rigorous, tuition-free programs are driven by our commitment to equity and excellence and fit squarely with the distinctive mission of Yale SOM to educate leaders for business and society.


Generating Knowledge About Effective School System Leadership

TBC at Yale SOM will convene scholars engaged in research on public education along with domestic policymakers and practitioners committed to moving the needle on improved outcomes for students. We will be building a data repository to serve as the leading resource for national research on large urban K-12 public school systems.


Informing and Elevating the Policy Debate

Policy paves the way for educational improvement. We aim to shape the public policy debate relating to K-12 education through high-profile conferences, events, and communication. These convenings will be opportunities for great ideas to flourish and for critical action to take hold.

The Broad Center at Yale SOM

“The Broad Center at Yale SOM will have a transformative impact on the lives of the millions of young people who rely upon the public education system for the high-quality, effective schooling that society owes them.”
