Institutions and Human Capital
Educational institutions play a critical role in forming human capital in that they foster development of cognitive and socioemotional skills and adoption of healthy behaviors during critical stages of youth and young adulthood. Along with partners in educational institutions serving students in kindergarten through community college, many CPIP faculty have co-developed conceptual and intervention-based approaches and research agendas that directly inform systems-level policy. Central to this theme is engaged, reciprocal partnership work between CPIP researchers and policy makers and practitioners based within the educational systems.
