Research Focus on Black Education Special Interest Group
The research institute is designed to prepare doctoral students to study the African American experience in education and pursue the professoriate. Accordingly, during the research institute, advanced doctoral students learn strategies to conduct research pertaining to the African American experience in education as well as receive information to help them prepare for their transition from doctoral education to faculty careers. The research institute is implemented in collaboration with Clemson University's Charles H. Houston Center for the Study of the Black Experience in Education, Wisconsin’s Equity and Inclusion Laboratory at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the University of North Carolina at Charlotte's Urban Education Collaborative, and the Todd Anthony Bell National Resource Center on the African American Male at The Ohio State University. This year's research institute is sponsored by the American Educational Research Association’s Multicultural/Multiethnic Education: Theory, Research, and Practice Special Interest Group. The research institute honors the life and legacy of Dr. Asa G. Hilliard III and Dr. Barbara A. Sizemore. Both scholars made significant and unique contributions to education research that extends throughout the world.
