Welcome to the website of Lisbeth B. Schorr, Senior Fellow, Center for the Study of Social Policy.

Over the last four decades, Lisbeth Schorr has explored and documented what makes social programs and policies effective in improving outcomes for disadvantaged children, families and neighborhoods.  Currently, she is focusing on lessons learned about how complex efforts to change life trajectories can be assessed, held accountable, spread and continuously improved to achieve bigger results.
