Reducing Inequities in Student Education Lab
The Reducing Inequities in Student Education (RISE) Lab investigates ways individual and institutional racial biases impact academic performance, socio-emotional development and identity development. We use a combination of methods to explore how racial biases are perpetuated and how they influence youth from early childhood to adolescence. Through this work, we optimize healthy child development by informing effective interventions, school policy changes and teacher preparation programs.
Mission & Values
The RISE Lab aims to identify individual and systemic practices contributing to racial inequities in students’ access to positive schooling experiences, and to opportunities that promote academic achievement and social-emotional and identity development.
