The College of Education is home to an active and vibrant research community that is well respected for managing ground-breaking research efforts. Research happening on the University of Idaho campus and beyond, has produced critical findings and led to the development of important educational programs and curriculum. As well as being dedicated in teaching and advising students, our faculty members are extremely committed to their research efforts. They also enthusiastically encourage graduate students, as well as undergraduate students to participate in research projects and activities. Our research areas are divided in Centers, including:
- Center for Ethical Theory and Honor in Competition and Sport (ETHICS*) - The Center for ETHICS*, Division of Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance, College of Education, has the goal of improving moral development and character education through intervention, consultation, and leadership.
- Center for Educational Research and Public Service (CERPS)- CERPS was established to conduct and support research and evaluation, to facilitate research by College of Education faculty members and graduate students, and to be of assistance to local school districts and to other educational institutions.
- Center on Disabilities and Human Development (CDHD) - The CDHD promotes quality lives in integrated settings for people of all ages with disabilities, individuals at-risk, and their families through education, outreach, research, and service.
- Instructional Materials and Technology Center (IMTC) - The IMTC at the University of Idaho provides resources and space to meet the academic and instructional objectives of the students and faculty at the College of Education.
