Resourcing Excellence in Education

The Resourcing Excellence in Education (REEd) Center is a university-based intermediary with deep ties to the TK–12 education community across the state. We are committed to moving research findings into practice and building the capacity of education systems to improve teaching and learning with the goal of reducing education inequities. We do this by testing professional growth systems for building capacity and using research practice partnerships to spread and deepen this work in many districts across the state and beyond.

Our mission is to increase education opportunities and reduce inequities for all students by improving teaching and learning across the education eco-system.

REEd produces cutting-edge and action-oriented research designed to advance the field’s understanding of education inequities while seeking to improve teacher and leader practices and promote student experiences that improve educational outcomes for students.

Our process includes:

  • Developing research-practice partnerships that will create and sustain the conditions needed for high-quality educational systems in order to improve educator practice and student experiences.
  • Providing school systems, policymakers and others education organizations with expertise and proven capacity-building processes that will improve education outcomes for students.
  • Accelerating systemic improvement in P-20 educational systems by facilitating the dissemination and adoption of research-based practices.

UC Davis Upward Bound Awarded Five Grants

Program is administered by the School’s REEd Center

Upward Bound Sacramento-Solano students meet on the UC Davis campus during their summer residence program.

The School of Education’s REEd Center has received five federal Upward Bound grants totaling more than $8.7 million to continue serving 348 high school students in Sacramento, Solano, Shasta and Siskiyou counties over the next five years.

“The students in our Upward Bound programs have so much promise and untapped potential, but their opportunities might have been limited by their socioeconomic status,” said Car Mun Kok, PhD, Director of College Opportunity Programs for the UC Davis School of Education.
