Center for Social Policy

at the University of Massachusetts Boston


Since its inception in 1992, the Center for Social Policy has provided expertise on policies and practices that aim to reduce or eliminate social and economic inequities. CSP researchers, evaluators, and policy analysts make critical assessments of low-wage jobs, barriers to housing affordability, unequal distribution of resources, and the impact of these patterns on families, communities, and society as a whole. With a commitment to excellence, equity, integrity, and participation, CSP looks closely at the root causes of poverty in order to inform fundamental changes in policy design and service delivery. We are pleased to share our brochure with you!                   

Our mission is to provide highest quality research services to change agents on a sustainable basis and we offer competitive pricing. If you have a project idea or have any questions, please feel free to email us at and we will happily set up a thinking session with you.
