Arthur Reynolds is co-director of the Human Capital Research Collaborative and a professor of child development at the University of Minnesota, as well as serving as director of the Chicago Longitudinal Study (CLS) of the Child-Parent Centers (CPC) of Chicago. As CLS director, Reynolds has managed, over a span of two decades, one of the largest longitudinal studies of the effects of early childhood programs. Through a partnership with Chicago schools and many government agencies, the project has amassed a rich array of program evidence for over 1,500 CPC graduates. Reynolds’ research interests include the effects of early childhood intervention on children’s development from school entry to early adulthood, family and school influences on children’s educational success, and the determinants of economic and social well-being in early adulthood.
