Research

The College of Education and Human Services (CEHS) is deeply invested in establishing a research-friendly atmosphere for faculty and students. Exciting and ground-breaking activities are taking place in all of our departments, including undergraduate research, partnerships with schools and community organizations, and collaborations with other Wright State offices. 

The Dean’s Office supports innovative research with partnership/community mini-grants and professional development funds. Mini-grants are awarded to faculty who submit creative proposals for research projects that will promote opportunities that enhance the learning of students, provide high-quality professional development for faculty and partners, and strengthen our communities. 

Wright State is a partner in the Ohio Education Research Center (OERC). This collaboration between six universities and four research organizations connect research, education, and policy for Ohio’s schools. Faculty from CEHS are involved with research on student growth measures, teacher evaluation, leadership in schools, and much more.  

CEHS is also the home for Wright State’s Center for Wellness Science. Co-directed by Dr. Carl Sabo and Dr. Gina Oswald, the Center was founded to coordinate and facilitate wellness-related professional development, community project, and research opportunities.

Student research in CEHS is also flourishing. Undergraduate and graduate students are presenting at conferences alongside faculty mentors. Students in many CEHS programs are able to attend workshops on research and publication, and can take advantage of opportunities to showcase their work at a variety of events, such as the Middle Childhood Education Symposium and the Celebration of Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activities.
