Education Research Center


The University of Houston Education Research Center serves as both a research center and as a site for the P-20/Workforce Data Repository, providing access to longitudinal, student-level data for scientific inquiry and policymaking purposes. Opened in 2017 with remote access added in January 2021, the UH ERC works to bridge the gap between theory and policy by providing a cooperative research environment for study by scholars and policy makers. As part of its mission, the UH ERC works with researchers, practitioners, state and federal agencies, and other policymakers to help inform upon critical issues relating to education today.
