Dukakis Center Director Barry Bluestone was recently featured in the Boston Business Journal as a “Champion of Education.”
Building a base to ‘think and do’
Barry Bluestone launched the Kitty and Michael Dukakis Center for Urban and Regional Policy in 1999, with the goal of creating a state-of-the-art applied research facility at Northeastern University.
Since then, the center has swelled to more than 30 staff and faculty, adding an affiliated public policy school offering master’s and doctoral programs, and become a major news maker with numerous reports on housing, economic development and transportation.
