Arlitt Center Changes Name, Embraces New Initiatives

The Arlitt Center, in expanding its research and practice focus to embrace new initiatives and a wider age span, has changed its name to The Arlitt Center for Education, Research & Sustainability. While the primary program at The Arlitt Center will be the lab school, three new endeavors are providing the impetus for this name change. “We wanted to ensure that our name reflected our expanding research and community initiatives related to sustainability and environments for children, youth, and families” explains Dr. Carr, Executive Director of the Center.

First, the journal, Children, Youth and Environments and the Children, Youth and Environments Network will be housed at The Arlitt Center, partnering with faculty in UC’s College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning (DAAP). Editors are Drs. Victoria Carr, Rhonda Brown, and Vikas Mehta.

Second, the certificate in Education for Environmental Sustainability, administered by Dr. Carr, undertakes collaboration related to sustainability with other UC initiatives, colleges, and community programs.

Third, the Developmental and Learning Sciences Center, a former affiliate, has changed its name to the Developmental and Learning Sciences Research Laboratory and is now part of The Arlitt Center.
