About Texas A&M ERC

Who we are

The Texas A&M University Education Research Center (ERC) studies major issues in education reform and school governance. The mission of the ERC is to investigate these issues in order to inform educational policy, facilitate decision-making, and improve student learning. The ERC's interdisciplinary team of researchers has distributed expertise in a broad range of research methods, analytical skills and specialized content areas. The team includes researchers from TAMU's College of Education and Human Development, Bush School of Government and Public Service, College of Science, College of Engineering, College of Liberal Arts, and from TAMU International.

In support of its mission, the ERC conducts research in three areas:

a) program evaluation

b) STEM education
