Research in Our Schools: Duke University School Research Partnership Office, Research Studies 2007-2008
Center for Child and Family Policy, Duke University (NJ1)
The Duke University School Research Partnership (SRP) Office was developed with support from the Office of the Provost and the Center for Child and Family Policy. Begun in 2006 as the Duke Office for Research in Schools (DORIS), the SRP Office is an integral part of the work of the Center for Child and Family Policy. The SRP Office facilitates collaborations between Duke researchers and area school districts to create and maintain mutually beneficial relationships. The ideal is for the SRP Office to serve as a portal between Duke and area school districts. This function streamlines processes and maximizes the mutual benefits of the research conducted so that school districts, schools, students and Duke researchers all benefit from the collaboration. This document provides brief descriptions, investigator names, and contact information for research initiatives and projects undertaken by the SRP Office. Research abstract categories include: (1) Developing and Evaluating Programs to Enhance Student Performance; (2) Peer Influence on Adolescents (Research Studies from the Transdisciplinary Prevention Research Center (TPRC), funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse); (3) Teacher Characteristics, Retention and Professional Development; (4) Race, Ethnicity and Culture; and (5) Educational Policy Influences on Student Outcomes.
