Research

Through our individual research efforts, we are able to transform knowledge, methodology, theories, and practice in ways that truly shape our professions and make a difference in the lives of real people. Because we want to have an impact, research must be translated so it can influence policy, dismantle harmful systems, and positively affect the daily lives of individuals and communities. Divided by academic department, below we offer a sampling of our faculty EDJI-related research areas.
