Our faculty and students conduct research that touches all aspects of education, both inside and outside the classroom. We study the ways that people learn, and develop physically and mentally, by exploring areas that influence policy and the understanding of education and health. The driving force for our research is to increase educational opportunity and improve public health.
The College of Education consists of five departments that span several areas of research ranging from curriculum to policy to public health. In addition, several centers and institutes focus on specific issues in education.
