The Hip-Hop Education Center has been at the forefront of generating academic research and evaluation reports to define and map the disparate and thriving field. We began our research with a national scan of hip-hop programs in collaboration with New York University’s  Metropolitan Center for Research on Equity and the Transformation of Schools.  The Hip-Hop Education Center is the official research partner of The Universal Hip Hop Museum. Together we have documented Hip-Hop history through the creation of three multimedia timelines.

We have collaborated with over 100 institutions and organizations from around the world.
