ABOUT ME

Jeffrey Alvin Anderson is a tenured professor in the School of Education at Indiana University-Bloomington (IU). He holds affiliations with the Center for International Education, Development, and Research (CIEDR), the Center for Evaluation and Educational Policy (CEEP), and is the principal investigator of Project FoCuS (Families, Communities, and Schools): “Supporting partnerships among schools, families, and communities through collaboration, engagement, and research.” Author of more than 40 peer-reviewed publications, Anderson’s research broadly focuses on the role and impact of interagency collaboration and family engagement in public schools and communities. Preventing mental illness, supporting families, and improving educational and social outcomes, especially for young people with emotional and behavioral challenges, are core goals of his work. Since arriving at IU in 1998, Anderson has been awarded almost $6 million in external funding for his research and development efforts. He teaches in the undergraduate, graduate, and Ph.D. programs in teacher education and curriculum and instruction and is a member of IU’s Faculty Colloquium on Excellence in Teaching. He formerly held an adjunct appointment in public health and in 2005, won IUPUI’s prestigious Joseph E. Taylor Award for Excellence in Diversity. He currently is working with CIEDR on a USAID grant with the Faculty of Education at the University of Prishtina, Kosova, to create collaborative research partnerships with IU.

Professor Anderson grew up in a small town in Wisconsin and, after completing a four-year stint as a hospital corpsman in the U.S. Coast Guard, he found his calling as a public school teacher. He loves teaching and has extensive experience in teacher education, special education, and urban education. He is the former director of the IU’s Teaching All Learners Program (TAL) that prepares undergraduates to teach in elementary school and include students with special education labels. Prior to that, he directed the graduate and undergraduate special education programs at IUPUI for almost 10 years. Also at IUPUI, Anderson was a founding director of the Center for Urban and Multicultural Education (CUME), 2002-2007, during which time he simultaneously served as the Associate Dean for Research for IUPUI’s School of Education. He is a former Independent Hearing Officer (Administrative Law Judge) for the Indiana Department of Education and spent seven years as a member of the Institutional Review Board, also at IUPUI. Anderson is currently an associate editor for the Journal of Child and Family Studies and the incoming president-elect of Higher Education Consortium Special Education (http://www.hecse.net/), 2017-2019. His presidential platform will focus on bridging the gap between educational research and policymaking. He enjoys collaborating with students, practitioners, and family members, and has published his work in journals from a variety of fields including education, teacher preparation, child and family studies, mental health, and social work. Jeff Anderson is happily married, has 4 kids who range in age from 12 to 32, and the family has 2 cats, 5 chickens, a snake, mice, and a pretty cool dog named Jupiter.
