Public Engagement

Making research findings accessible to a broad audience is central to UChicago CCSR’s mission. Our researchers play an active role in the national conversation on school reform by regularly presenting findings around the country and around the world at conferences, universities, and to groups of practitioners and policy makers.

To help make our research accessible to stakeholders in Chicago, we often host events for local practitioners, policy makers, and media to discuss findings and their implications.

Through the UChicago CCSR Institutes, we collaborate with other education research consortia across the country to share best practices and develop shared research projects. Locally, UChicago CCSR Institutes bring together groups of district administrators and practitioners for in-depth conversations about the research and what it means at the school and district level.
