The Office of Grants and Funded Research is a service unit within the Dean's area.
Its mission is to initiate, support and develop the sponsored research, training, and service activities of faculty and graduate students.
The Office of Grants and Funded Research provides support to faculty in identifying significant education and policy issues; encouraging individual, collaborative and interdisciplinary inquiry, locating external funding sources; preparing grant proposals and providing post-award management services Research resources for faculty and students include the services of the Office of Grants and Funded Research within the College of Education, as well as broader support available throughout the campus-wide Office of Sponsored Programs.
Education faculty members frequently reach across campus to collaborate with colleagues from other disciplines to create innovative, multidisciplinary solutions to education problems. Much research occurs in school settings, where strategies can be tested and ideas translated into practice.
The new knowledge generated from our research addresses some of the most critical challenges facing education today, including the teacher shortage, student assessment, the achievement gap, rural education and early childhood development.
