Our research culture is field-leading and highly influential with a long tradition of translating research into effective models, methods, and measures that improve lives.
Our Social Systems Data Science (SDS) Network is dedicated to accelerating data-driven research and outreach efforts in the educational, behavioral, and social sciences.
We are home to 14 research and outreach units. Our faculty members in these units have a reputation for conducting innovative work in school reform, assessment, school-wide discipline and behavior management, positive youth development, family interventions, special education, early intervention, and culturally responsive educational practices. These programs help children and families of all ages—from infants and toddlers to adolescents and young adults. The work they do is making a difference in Oregon, across the country, and around the world.
