Learn More About Our Solutions

We founded EveryDay Labs because we believe that making family-school communication more effective can change student outcomes—and we’ve proven that it can.

As a behavioral scientist and professor of public policy at the Harvard Kennedy School, Dr. Todd Rogers has worked across public sectors to improve everyday life by using behavioral science insights to mitigate social challenges.  

After his students encouraged him to meet with Dr. Karen L. Mapp, the leading expert on family engagement, Dr. Rogers’ focus changed. She inspired him to focus on families as a way to change student outcomes. Leveraging behavioral science insights to conduct groundbreaking research with a team of researchers including Jessica Lasky-Fink, Dr. Avi Feller, and Dr. Carly Robinson, Dr. Rogers developed attendance nudges designed to empower families to overcome barriers to their children’s school attendance. From that research, Dr. Rogers cofounded EveryDay Labs to help districts implement his intervention scale.

Leading Our Research and Innovation

EveryDay Labs was cofounded by Dr. Rogers. He is a behavioral scientist and professor of public policy at Harvard University. Dr. Rogers uses data and behavioral science to develop scalable, high-ROI interventions that empower students’ social support systems to improve achievement. He leads EveryDay Labs’ program development and optimization. Dr. Rogers received his Ph.D. jointly from Harvard’s Department of Psychology and Harvard Business School. EveryDay Labs is not endorsed by Harvard and his role with EveryDay Labs is independent of his faculty position at Harvard.
