Information for specific audiences:

Thank you for visiting the College of Education's research information page. We have designed this site as a place to share information about the active research programs being carried on by the faculty in the College. Many of our research activities are funded through external agencies, such as the U.S. Department of Education, the National Science Foundation, and the Spencer Foundation. We also conduct research to assist policy-makers at the State and local levels in making decisions grounded in research data.

On this page you will find more information about specific research in the College of Education, as well as links to research offices and projects within the College and some select findings that provide a glimpse into our faculty research activities. Our faculty members go beyond state-of-the-art teaching to also promote high-quality education through the scientific exploration of teaching and learning processes and a host of related societal education issues. By so doing, we are accepting our role within a top-tier research University to strengthen public education and support state and national education policy.
