Humphrey Institute shedding Centers?

The Center for Democracy and Citizenship moved from the Humphrey Institute to a new home in Augsburg College in July. Now comes the news that the Center for School Change is also leaving the Humphrey Institute, moving to Macalester at the end of the year. The Macalester press release notes that the Center is fully grant-funded, and “will cover the full cost of its space, and grants administration and other fiscal services Macalester will provide.”

Joe Nathan founded the Center for School Change in 1990 and still directs it. The Center for School Change has one other staff member. Harry Boyte founded the Center for Democracy and Citizenship and remains its co-director. The Humphrey Institute still lists a dozen centers and programs under its umbrella, and all parties are saying that the moves are entirely amicable and voluntary.
