The Center for Research on Children in the United States (CROCUS) was established in 2001 with start-up funds from the Foundation for Child Development.  The Center blends graduate training in public policy, including a joint degree program in Public Policy (M.A.) and Psychology (Ph.D.), and interdisciplinary research programs that bear on pressing policy issues.

 
A core focus is early childhood education, including research on the Oklahoma pre-K program, child care, and Head Start. Students and faculty are also studying child advocacy groups, community violence prevention programs, children and the new media, and parent participation in juvenile justice proceedings.
