The Broad Center at the Yale School of Management is a catalyst for improving K-12 public education in large urban public school systems in the United States through leadership development, impactful research, and policy engagement. These school systems can and must be engines of excellence and equity for all of the students and families they serve.
Developing School System Leaders in Large Urban K-12 Public Schools
The Center 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
The Center 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 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.
Eli Broad, who established The Broad Foundation with his wife Edythe, said, “I’m very proud of what we’ve accomplished in the last 20 years and I can think of no better future for The Broad Center than Yale University.”
