Mission Statement

The Center for Research on Culture, Development and Education at New York University focuses on examining the intersection between culture and developmental processes as they influence school readiness and educational outcomes among children and youth from diverse ethnic, racial, and socioeconomic backgrounds. Our work focuses on three interrelated components of education - engagement, learning, and performance. Engagement refers to active participation and involvement in school-related activities, and attitudes about achievement. Learning refers to the process of acquiring knowledge or skills
relevant to school readiness and academic success. Performance refers to academic outcomes, such as grades or standardized test scores.

Description

The Center for Research on Culture, Education, and Development represents a coordinated effort to create a scholarly community of national significance. We have assembled leading scholars from diverse scientific disciplines (e.g., economics, education, sociology, media studies, public policy, community psychology, developmental psychology, and social psychology) all of whom provide expertise across contexts, developmental stages, and research methodologies. Center members have published highly acclaimed work on infant and pre-schoolersâ learning, language, and cognitive development; children and adolescentsâ school performance, academic achievement, peer relations, and concepts of self; the roles of families, schools, peers, media, workplace, social policies, and culture on the developmental trajectories of young children and youth; and have extensive experience working within numerous schools in New York City and school systems across the country.
