The Policy Lab provides Yale students a physical space and dynamic programming to conduct data-intensive policy-related investigations, develop specialized technical skills, and engage with policymakers. The Lab also brings together Yale partners, local New Haven residents and organizations, government officials, and policymakers to create one of the first student-focused models of a university-community policy partnership in the United States. The Policy Lab is poised to help improve local policy initiatives and make New Haven a national model of research-community partnerships.
