As part of the University of Rochester, a top-ranked research university, a key difference of the Warner School is its commitment to research. The Warner School is very aware of the evolving needs of the educating professions, and through research, we are committed to improving practice and knowledge.
Our faculty and students are involved in important research projects and initiatives that change the face of education and human development. For faculty and students alike, research is one of the powerful tools we use to improve practice, whether it be on the front-line as teachers, or at the level of policy reform, curriculum development, or school administration. And through collaboration and combining research, theory, and practice, Warner faculty and students further their fields and become agents of change for the improvement of schools and communities.

Another powerful asset is the Warner Center for Professional Development and Education Reform, which works with educational institutions to support the cause of education reform and to encourage the preparation and ongoing education of excellent teachers. Through research and professional development opportunities, the Warner Center serves as a catalyst to initiate new practices, new understandings, and new work in areas of education.
