Bureau of Educational Research
The Bureau of Educational Research fulfills a broad mission of enriching the research culture for faculty and students in the College of Education by supporting interdepartmental or interdisciplinary collaboration; nurturing faculty research, especially for those who are at critical passages in their careers; and grant writing and liaisons with funding agencies.
To accomplish this mission, the Bureau works with faculty to secure research funding, including supporting grant proposal writing and proposal submissions, and also helps coordinate the placement of campus research projects in schools in collaboration with the Center for Education in Small Urban Communities.
There is new information for projects that need to start at the beginning of school in the local school districts. We have added a summer submission for you but you must be ready to go on day one. Click here for more information.
