About The Lewin Center
Based on the legacy of Kurt Lewin’s work in the applied behavioral sciences, we support gatherings of students, educators and practitioners that inspire action and continued collaboration.
The Lewin Center brings people together
to engage in experiential learning, dialogue and action research on social justice issues at the global, national, and community levels to enhance the quality of life for all.
Things we value
Experiential & Lifelong Learning
A framework that integrates the major processes of human growth and development – feeling, perceiving, thinking and doing.This framework is the theoretical underpinning of action research.
Processes of engagement that help people explore and clarify their shared purpose, interests, concerns and possibilities.
Social Action & Social Change
Supporting the actions of groups and individuals to make positive adjustments in their lives and circumstances.
Action & Participatory Research
Collaborative methods based in collective inquiry that engage those involved in an experience in co-creation from the outset. The process simultaneously creates new ways of learning, interacting and working.
Working toward the fair and equal distribution of resources and opportunities among all human beings.
