Research and Equity Scholarship Institute on Student Trajectories in Education

Our Mission

The mission of the “RES Institute” at San Diego State University is to promote scientific and applied research, training, and the exchange of information that contribute to the knowledge and understanding of P-20 educational trajectories and the contexts that engage and support students from diverse backgrounds. The RES Institute unites scholars who research important topics pertaining to equity in education to collaborate on funded research projects and the production of timely research reports and publications with critical implications for education policy and practice. The RES Institute’s local and national projects have explored topics such as student mobility; community college pathways; minority serving institutions; and underrepresented students in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). The RES Institute seeks to become a nationally recognized locus for education policy research that will support work to inform education policy debates at multiple levels.
