The University of Notre Dame’s Center for Research on Educational Opportunity (CREO) has been designated an “international research network” by the World Education Research Association (WERA). This recognition of CREO’s leadership in the sociology of education will open new doors for international scholarly collaborations in research on educational inequality.
CREO, directed by distinguished sociologist Mark Berends, will now have WERA support in building a global community of scholarship on educational equity issues as they relate to education policy.
As one of the newly established international research networks, called WERA-IRNs, CREO will examine the state of research, synthesize knowledge, and stimulate collaborations, with a goal of identifying promising research directions in the field of educational inequality around the world.
