This is a great chance to be right in the middle of some of the most interesting work in education right now especially as policymakers are paying more attention to non-academic aspects of learning and, more specifically, to Angela Duckworth’s work.
The mission of the Character Lab is to advance the science and practice of character development so that all children develop to their fullest potential. To more fully realize our interdisciplinary vision, the Character Lab moved its physical headquarters from New York City to Philadelphia. Coincident with this move, Angela Duckworth assumed her current leadership role as Scientific Director and Donald Kamentz, a two-decade education veteran most recently with the YES Prep public charter school system in Houston, is the new Executive Director.
We have an ambitious new strategic plan, through which we will radically increase the quantity of applied research on character development, create innovative measures of character for use by both researchers and educators, and create effective and easy-to-use character development tools for educators, among other important initiatives.
