Stevens Literacy Center
Welcome to the Edward Stevens Center for the Study and Development of Literacy and Language (Stevens Literacy Center). The Stevens Literacy Center is engaged in community outreach in numerous, diverse relationships with local schools, businesses, and other community agencies. This work supports the Patton College of Education and Ohio University missions.
Established in 1997 by Dr. Edward W. Stevens, Jr., a distinguished professor of history and philosophy of education, the Stevens Literacy Center focuses on improving lives by researching, developing and promoting literacy across the lifespan. The professional staff seeks and secures external funds to design and implement applied research projects that create solutions for issues of low-level literacy and language development. The Stevens Literacy Center is the parent organization for the Helen M. Robinson Center for Reading (a community tutoring center) and numerous state and national special projects.
Bringing Literacy To Life is the theme of The Patton College of Education's 2019 Literacy Conference on the campus of Ohio University in Athens, Ohio.
