Outreach Services

To assist and serve research faculty in connecting with schools, agencies, and other interested stakeholders to provide space and opportunity for educational and research purposes

Since October 2016 when Amy began, she has developed a portfolio of contacts in the local public ISDs, charter schools, and private schools. These contacts are with superintendents, principals, curriculum directors, school board members, and teachers.

Outreach Services include:

  • Supporting our faculty researchers in developing and maintaining relationships with research stakeholders and participants (schools or agencies)
  • Coordinating with the CEHD Marketing and Communications team to help our researchers market their work
  • Helping with the recruitment of study participants
  • Assisting in obtaining letters of support for proposal development
  • Promoting the CEHD in the field of education and beyond
  • Maintaining communication between the REO Office and faculty researchers

Relationship Development

With Our Faculty:

    In order to help best match research goals with the needs of schools, Amy must understand the dynamics of all stakeholders including the research faculty.

  • Amy meets with our faculty to learn as much as possible about their projects to effectively promote the work.
  • Amy works with them to develop ideas about how to engage community stakeholders, where to go, or who to contact for their research ideas.

With Texas School Districts Partners:

Amy has developed relationships with schools statewide, with a focus in the Houston area.

With Other Community Partners:

To assist the research activities occurring outside school districts, Amy facilitates outreach with a variety of local agencies.
