Patton College of Education Interim Associate Dean for Research and Graduate Studies

A Message from Interim Senior Associate Dean for Research and Graduate Studies

Welcome to the Research and Graduate Studies website for The Gladys W. and David H. Patton College of Education. The Patton College has a strong history of graduate education and research that has built its foundation as a community of scholars. Our graduate students and faculty members are important elements of this continuing legacy.

Our goals as they relate to research include:

  • Attaining and maintaining national and international recognition for the quality of research being generated by faculty and students within The Patton College;
  • Becoming a national leader by engaging in and promoting evidence-based practice in the area of research and evaluation;
  • Generating research that is directly connected to community-based analysis and outcomes, which will serve to inform and influence public policy at the local, state, and federal levels; and
  • Enhancing productivity in acquiring grants and other external funding that result in scholarly production and collaborative partnerships.

Our faculty have published in top journals in their fields, including Educational Research, Journal of Mixed Methods Research, Studies in Higher Education, Research in Higher Education, Journal of Applied Developmental Psychology, Teaching and Teacher Education, Journal of Teacher Education, International Journal of Hospitality Management, Journal of Travel Research, Family and Consumer Sciences Research Journal, and Educational Researcher. In the past several years, grants totaling over $2,000,000 have been awarded to our faculty by the US Department of Education, National Science Foundation, Spencer Foundation, and various state organizations.

Whether you are a faculty member, graduate student, undergraduate honors student, or collaborator with someone from the aforementioned groups, there are opportunities to engage with others in efforts to enhance your research. Please see the resources available below. Additionally, keep an eye out for emails from me regarding upcoming events and opportunities, and watch for event announcements on the E-Boards located throughout Patton Hall.
