Office of Educational Research Support
The College of Education focuses on research that improves teaching, learning, and other aspects of education and health education. The Office of Educational Research Support provides two distinct types of services: statistical analysis via SMARTER Consulting and pre- and post-award research administration via our research administration team known as COERA. These two teams provide robust and dynamic research support to students and faculty interested in conducting research in our college.
