These bold goals come from USC’s new strategic vision for the future, and set high benchmarks for the university’s research scholars.
At the Rossier School, these goals are not only attainable, but are being demonstrated again and again across our six research centers and by our community of scholars.
This year alone:
- The Center on Educational Governance released its 2011 USC School Performance Dashboard on California charters, identifying the state’s top ten, and establishing clear criteria for parents and others to assess best practices.
- The Center for Enrollment Research, Policy and Practice issued its report, “The Case for Change in College Admissions: A Call for Individual and Collective Leadership,” which is leading the national conversation to reshape college admissions in the public interest.
- The Center for Higher Education Policy Analysis, with a $1 million grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, is developing Collegeology, a suite of games to help underserved students navigate the path to college.
- The Center for Urban Education released a report in conjunction with the National College Access Network on its pilot project to strengthen the college-going culture at two Boston high schools through its Equity Scorecard process.
- The Center for Cognitive Technology continues its groundbreaking work applying cognitive learning and motivation research into practice as a way to solve many of the most difficult performance problems encountered in work and school settings.
- The Center for Outcomes Research and Evaluation is leading a university-wide STEM collaborative, bringing together over a dozen USC Schools to establish a national clearinghouse for research in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics P-16 education.
The following features highlight three of the most recent research efforts, and demonstrate Rossier’s undisputedly impactful scholarship.
