Established in 2007 as a joint venture between LRDC and Pitt's School of Education, the Learning Policy Center (LPC) researches and advances ideas that lie at the intersection of policy and learning. LPC informs policymakers by conducting and disseminating its research on educational reform. It publishes regular policy briefs to keep policymakers apprised of learning research findings and works to influence policy decisions by actively engaging in policy work. The LPC Colloquium Series involves education stakeholders, including researchers, policymakers, and practitioners, in discussions of education reform challenges and solutions. LPC has established itself as a research center and as a conduit of knowledge about learning for education decision makers.
