Moving the Dial on Education Issues That Matter

The Penn State College of Education faculty is actively involved in a wide array of interdisciplinary research initiatives that address today’s pressing societal issues, with a commitment to creating a more equitable and just education system for all.

In fact, our department supports more than a dozen centers for research and community engagement that advance today’s relevant educational causes, including educational inequality, civil rights, rural education, educational policy, professional development of educators, STEM education, adult literacy, and distance education.

Our grants administrators take the guesswork out of the process by providing guidance and administrative and management services for all sponsored projects, including grants, contracts, and cooperative agreements — from the review of foundation guidelines to logistics, budgets, proposal submission, and more.
