Bringing Research To Life


The University of Delaware is dedicated to discovering solutions to the problems that face our schools and the challenges encountered by children, adults and families in the 21st century.  We focus on applied research, to advance knowledge in the fields of education and human development.

Our students, in both undergraduate and graduate programs, work with faculty to develop research skills. Together, our faculty and students are making a difference–designing curriculum, policies and programs that improve school instruction, professional development for teachers, services for children with special needs, domestic violence and other critical issues.
