Abstract The Center for Early Adolescence was founded in 1978 by Joan Lipsitz, who served as director until 1985. The Center's mission was to promote the healthy development of people between the ages of 10-15 through its research and programs. Through publications, an information service, trainings for educators and others serving young people, and research, the Center worked to address issues specific to young adolescents, particularly middle grade education, preventing school dropout, health and sexuality, literacy and math skills, and community services for young adolescents. From 1978 to 1980, it was located in the School of Education, then moved to the Department of Maternal and Child Health within the School of Public Health. From 1985 to 1988, Leah Lefstein served as acting director of the Center. In 1988, the Center moved to the School of Medicine, and Frank Loda was named director. Records consist of project files, conference and workshop materials, financial information, and other records. Acquired as part of University Archives.
