We are dedicated to training the next generation of education policy scholars. Our aim is to enhance the methodological expertise of students from a range of disciplines by providing them with a strong foundation in causal inference methods. Through collaborative work, students develop expertise in conducting cutting-edge research in education policy and evaluation.
Our faculty are preeminent education scholars and dedicated teachers. They study the impacts of early childhood programs, a range of curriculum and instructional models, higher education policies and programs, and much more. Learn more about our affiliated faculty.
Our alumni have gone on to make a lasting impact on education agencies and policies through careers in higher education and research partnerships with different education systems, such as the Tennessee Department of Education, Iowa College Student Aid Commission, Los Angeles Unified School District, and Boston Public Schools.
The EPI community and seminar series offered me an invaluable opportunity to present my research and receive comments from students and faculty when the work was still in a preliminary stage. This is rarely done in other seminars or research venues, but is very important if we want our research to be valuable to policy makers and practitioners.
