What We Do
EdPolicyWorks is a joint collaboration between the School of Education and Human Development and the Frank Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy that seeks to bring together researchers from across the University of Virginia and the State to focus on important questions of educational policy and the competitiveness of labor in an era of globalization.
We envision that educational policy and workforce competitiveness encompass a broad range of issues and seek to develop a diverse portfolio of research projects and disciplinary perspectives on these issues.
