Department of Educational Psychology
About the Department
The Department of Educational Psychology (EPSY) contributes to creating more just and equitable communities, schools, and families through innovative, award-winning research, engaged partnerships and outreach.
We engage in teaching and research in two broad areas:
- Development and application of relevant measures, evaluations, statistical analyses, and assessments of human learning and development to improve educational institutions and research
- Better understanding of human development and learning in context, with a specific focus on how individual, family, and community diversity shape human development and learning
We examine how culture, ethnicity, immigration status, class, gender and sexual orientation relate to human development and learning.
