Center for Education Policy Analysis

The Center for Education Policy Analysis (CEPA) works to improve public education by serving as a resource for education decision makers. We work with schools, districts, state and federal agencies, nonprofits and other universities to provide research and analysis on the issues facing public education.

Our services include program design and evaluation, quantitative and qualitative research, policy and legal analysis, planning and facilitation, and expert staffing for public commissions and processes. 

CEPA is a member of the Education Policy Alliance, a university-based alliance of research centers.


CEPA hosts the Education Policy and Networking Series. Co-sponsored by the School of Public Affairs and the School of Education & Human Development, this series provides a forum for emerging policy-savvy teachers and analysts, as well as education policy leaders.
