Research in the SOE

The School of Education is a vibrant hub of research and innovation advancing knowledge and practice in the fields of education, social justice, assessment, and socioemotional well-being. Faculty members study critical problems facing our region and nation and work closely with school districts, community organizations, and practitioners to improve education systems and social programs.

Research in the School of Education encompasses a diverse range of work, from small-scale studies working with individual teachers, counselors or community leaders to large federally funded projects cutting across multiple school districts, community organizations and states. The theme of innovation intersects all of this work; innovation in teaching and learning, innovation in social programs that provide access to critical services, and innovation in the products and tools we use to accomplish these goals.
