The Center for Education Policy Studies is a vehicle by which faculty and graduate students from the College of Education can engage in an agenda of in-depth education policy study, research, and program evaluation for the purpose of contributing to K-12 school improvement. It is designated as a service and scholarly research center.
The Center operates within the aegis of the College of Education with the Co-Directors of the Center reporting directly to the Dean. Essential to the mission of the Center is the task of aggressively engaging qualified members of the faculty and students in research activities directly associated with school improvement policy studies. Activities undertaken by the Center are closely coordinated with other entities with the College of Education.
