Center for Education Research and Policy Studies
The Center for Education Research and Policy Studies (
As part of the faculty support system,
The Center publishes quarterly policy briefs that address a variety of topics such as Texas school finance reform, dual language education, local and regional educator labor markets, and programs and policies that address the needs of historically under-served students. The purpose of our policy brief series is to directly impact educational policy locally, across Texas, and nationally by providing evidence-based policy recommendations. Policy briefs are based on research conducted at the University of Texas at El Paso by College of Education faculty.
Vision: To create a robust scholarly community that contributes to the knowledge base of teaching, learning, and research as it relates to educational policy, theory, and practice in our local community, across the state, and nationally.
Mission: Coordinate and support interdisciplinary and collaborative research in our college and across the university.
Purpose: Provide resources and services to faculty to develop, conduct, and disseminate grant-funded education research.
