The faculty of the Social and Psychological Foundations of Education Department is committed to research, service, and taking on new initiatives to share with students.
Interests amongst faculty have included: play in preschool, parent participation in education, urban education, race, class and gender issues in schooling, and teacher preparedness.
Lately, peer-to-peer bullying has become a major topic in elementary and high schools across the U.S., which is why the department has created the Anti-Bullying Initiative.
The Anti-Bullying Initiative provides useful information such as statistics, published articles, lesson plans, and videos to inform current and future teachers on what bullying is and ways to prevent bullying in the classroom.
