The Edward Zigler Center in Child Development and Social Policy

Welcome and thank you for visiting the Zigler Center Website.

In addition to reading background information (including mission and history), visitors can read about the people associated with our center, and access information on our training program and lecture series that are ongoing at Yale University. Each year at the Zigler Center our faculty and fellows are active in several research and policy projects. Activities also include writing our annual report, producing several policy-relevant publications, providing interviews for popular media, giving testimony at governmental proceedings, and providing support and technical assistance to a network of over 1300 public schools nationwide through the Center’s School of the 21st Century program.

For information on giving donations to assist the Zigler Center and its mission, you can read information on our Contributing to the Zigler Center page.
