Grants to this Grantee
for implementation and replication of instructional reforms in developmental education
Fewer than half of all students entering college graduate in a timely fashion. For those in community colleges, completing remedial education is one of the biggest barriers to a degree. This grant would help the Community College Research Center study and replicate deeper learning interventions that improve community college completion rates among underprepared students. The Center will (1) help expand three intervention models with high potential to eleven colleges in up to five states, (2) forge a partnership with community college reform initiatives to adopt these models, and (3) conduct impact and implementation studies of the results.
for support of research on the impact of the Reimaging Education Summer Institute
Teachers College, Columbia University has faculty experts on issues of race and education whose work in the field individually and collectively seeks to reimagine education for a more racially just society. The Reimagining Education Summer Institute seeks to provide the knowledge, support, and community of professionals needed to become a racially literate, culturally relevant, and anti-racist educator. This grant will support research into understanding how educators that have attended the institute take lessons back and implement systemic school site and district-level transformations.
