About the AGI:
Bridging from Research to Policy and Practice
The Achievement Gap Initiative (AGI) at Harvard University helps build bridges from research to policy and practice in pursuit of societal excellence with equity.
Through research, publications, and convenings, the AGI endeavors to inform a national movement. Not only should there be group proportional equality—where group-level characteristics such as race or socioeconomic status cease to have bearing on an individual’s educational achievement—there should also be excellence. Bridging from research to policy and practice in ways that alter both structural and life-style patterns that stand in the way of excellence with equity is our primary purpose.
