The California Education Lab is a
collaborative group of researchers investigating important
questions of education policy and practice in California. Much of
our work focuses on understanding how young adults are prepared
for, transition into, and succeed in college.
The Center for Applied Policy in
Education (CAP-Ed) at UC Davis facilitates the nexus of research,
policy, and practice with a commitment to eliminating inequities
in schooling and providing learning opportunities for diverse
students. CAP-Ed connects education leaders and practitioners
with nonpartisan, research-supported information and expertise
from scholars and policymakers. Our services and publications
foster a thoughtful, well-informed education system in California
encompassing policy makers and those implementing policy in
schools and districts.
The Center for Community and Citizen Science is a home to programs and partnerships that revolutionize how—and with whom—science gets done. Based on a foundation of research excellence, the Center helps scientists, communities, and citizens collaborate on science to address environmental problems as a part of civic life.

REEd 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.
