The Chicago Education Workshop Lecture

Oct 24, 2017

Educational scholarship at Chicago has enjoyed and continues to enjoy an exciting and deliberate interdisciplinary role in addressing issues of educational inequality and improving academic outcomes for students. For more than a decade, the university has been deeply involved in efforts to improve schooling for students on the South Side of Chicago and to study the impact of these reform efforts. In 2006, the university launched a new Committee on Education, comprised of distinguished scholars in Comparative Human Development, Economics, Psychology, Public Policy, Social Service Administration, and Sociology. The Workshop on Education, with the support of the Council on Advanced Studies in the Humanities and Social Sciences, the Committee on Education, and the members of the pre-doctoral Interdisciplinary Research Training Program in the Education Sciences, enables education scholars throughout the University to explore the implications of contemporary education theory and methodology in an interdisciplinary group setting.
