Center for Public Policy Research (CPPR)

Dr. Gail S. Goodman directs the Center for Public Policy Research (CPPR) at the University of California, Davis, in partnership with the UC Davis Department of Psychology. CPPR serves state government and academic institutions by providing research services to support social policy and practice development in such areas as poverty, child protection, foster care, mental health, welfare, substance abuse, juvenile justice, and criminal justice.

CPPR is always looking for opportunities to expand the scope of its research and services. The services listed above are not exhaustive. We welcome new initiatives. Please contact us with your ideas! Visit the CPPR website to learn more or contact us.
