Explore CREATEd

CREATEd – collaboration, research, equity, and action together in education – aims to improve equitable educational opportunities and outcomes nationally by leveraging knowledge in the research and practice communities in ways that promote stronger, more equitable relationships among the two communities and ultimately improve the education system’s capacity for evidence-informed improvement. 

We create and strengthen relationships between research and practice.

We center equity and diversity in our practice, programs, and in the creation of resources.

We foster connections among knowledge brokers.

We generate, share, and use evidence about knowledge brokering in education.

To accomplish this mission, CREATEd engages in a variety of interrelated initiatives. Learn more about our work below.
