Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: A Position Statement for Colleges of Education

Without question, there remains an urgent need for institutions of higher education in the United States to take a proactive stance with regard to diversity, equity, and inclusion. This country and its many institutions have a devastating history with respect to racial oppression, religious persecution, discrimination, and systemic violence. Thus, schools and colleges of education, in particular, must take a critical, public stance against racism and in support of equitable, inclusive, anti-racist educational practices and spaces.


I invite you to read, “Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: A Position Statement for Colleges of Education,” share it with your networks, and visit our Facebook page (EHE Office of Diversity, Inclusion & Community Engagement: OSU) to post specific action schools/colleges of education must take to truly engage in this important work. Read the statement and use this link to add your name, organization, and email to show support for it.


All my best,

EHE RMC Methodology Leadership Series and Software Saturday Series


Generalized Item Response and Factor Trees with Dr. Paul De Boeck, OSU Professor of Psychology

Thursday, October 27, 1:00pm – 2:30pm

EHE College Commons, Ramseyer Hall 260



The RMC Strongly Agrees that you can get more information from your survey data!


Do you use surveys for your research?  While many of us rely on Likert Scales (Strongly Agree, Agree, etc.) to collect data, most of us don’t really know how to analyze these data.  Are they interval level?  Ordinal?  How you can properly deal with “Neutral” or “Undecided” responses?


Join Paul De Boeck as he discusses the true nature of Likert-type data and provides real-world examples of how these data can best be analyzed.  After this workshop, you will have new options for analysis that can help you get more information from your survey data!

EHE Office of Research-Dissertation Research Fellowship Applications!

Once again the EHE Office of Research will oversee the Dissertation Research Fellowship program for the 2017-2018 academic year. We wanted to get the process started early in the semester, so that applicants have sufficient time to assemble their packets.


At this time, Educational Studies will plan on nominating two (2) candidates for one (1) dissertation year fellowship.


The EHE Office of Research website already has posted the application guidelines for the Fellowship.  They can be found at http://go.osu.edu/EHEfellowship.


Applicants will need to provide a cover letter, up to a 6-page application, letters of support from their dissertation advisor and two other faculty members, a CV, and a Graduate School advising report.  The award includes a stipend as well as tuition for dissertation credit hours for Fall and Spring of 2017-2018.  The advisor should comment on other sources of funding that might be necessary to complete the dissertation.  The evaluation of the proposal by the advisor and the two other faculty members should focus on the demonstrated scholarship and future potential for scholarly excellence.  Evidence of previous research productivity is an important consideration.  Note that these awards can be held simultaneously with other external fellowships (e.g., Spencer dissertation fellowship) and are intended to support your top doctoral candidates.


The deadline for students to submit their packet to Deb Zabloudil is January 20, 2017.  These should then be forwarded to the appropriate Graduate Studies chair.  Please submit the documents electronically to Zabloudil.1@osu.edu. When you view the web site, it will tell you to submit your documents to Dr. Anderman’s office. Please don’t do that. Submit them to me instead so I can take them directly to the Graduate Studies Committee for review.


Although students need not be candidates at the time of application, they must be candidates by the end of Summer Session 2017 to be eligible to receive the award.  Students who have previously received the Dissertation Fellowship award are not eligible for consideration of continued support.
