The vision for research at U-M SOE is ambitious. We are dedicated to studying and improving education practice, policy, and the contexts of teaching and learning in order to build a just society.

In pursuit of this vision, U-M SOE seeks to make connections across its research efforts, its preparation of students, and its collaborations. We are committed to work that is synergistic in its approach, expansive in its scope, and limitless in its impact.

U-M SOE research is further strengthened by our numerous successful partnerships in Detroit and in southeast Michigan. Together, we work to build a just society in our surrounding communities by dispelling arrogance and building trust.
