A research center focused on providing evidence to public and policy discussions around education is now once again active at the IU School of Education. The Center for Evaluation and Education Policy, first founded in 2005, will explore a broad agenda of issues, including school choice and equitable access.
After a hiatus from the center, Director Chris Lubienski and Professor David Rutkowski were tasked with assessing if there was a need for CEEP to return to prominence. They heard enthusiasm for the center and looked at how other universities around the country approached similar research, and the relaunch began.
CEEP is currently assembling a wide range of experts from the School of Education and beyond, including nationally and internationally-renowned scholars from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds. The team has expertise in several vital areas, including teacher preparation, special education, higher education, education law, equity, leadership, desegregation, knowledge use and other key fields.
