The College of Education works with the University's Research and Sponsored Programs, Grants Accounting, and Research Ethics and Compliance Offices to encourage and support research and grant submissions by its faculty, staff, and students. The current Illinois State University research mission, vision, and goals are outlined in the Strategic Plan for Research, Scholarship and Creative Expression.
For complete URG information including guidelines and application information for Fellowship, External Grant Development, First-Year Faculty, and Small Grants, as well as our URG Workshop PowerPoint, approved URG examples, and URG timelines, please see the College's University Research Grants page.
Research and Sponsored Programs will match funds to support a faculty member’s publication cost for up to $600 over a three year period. They will match funds from faculty, Department, or College. For more information, please see RSP’s Publication/Exhibition/Open Access Grant page.
The mission statement of the Illinois State University Laboratory Schools includes four pillars, one of which is focused on research. Laboratory School faculty and staff are working on this pillar, and they invite Illinois State University colleagues in their classroom research endeavors. Please visit the website to learn more.
In order to conduct research in the Unit 5 School District, please complete the Request for Research Form and send to Associate Dean Barb Meyer. She will review and notify the applicant when it is sent to the Unit 5 office for review and of potential approval.
By the second week of each semester, the researcher should complete the COE Research Outcomes Report to show progress on the research. This form also notifies Unit 5 when publications or presentations are completed from the research in their school district. These reports should be sent to Associate Dean Barb Meyer.
