Center for Research on Education, Diversity & Excellence

Research Projects

From 1996-2001, CREDE operated over 30 projects under the six programmatic strands listed below. During 2001-2003, seven teams extracted and synthesized key findings and practices from the work of CREDE's 31 research projects from the previous five years. Comprised of the nation's leading experts, practitioners, and policymakers in education, each team focused on a specific theme. Each team produced an array of materials to bring state-of the-art knowledge on diversity education into America's classrooms and also made recommendations for future research agendas.
