The Annenberg Institute houses interconnected, faculty-led centers of work that generate new and provocative research; spur and evaluate related initiatives and innovations; collaborate with local, national and international partners; and help train and inspire a new generation of scholars focused on improving educational equality for children and youth.
Please note: Websites for these centers are under construction; check back soon for updates.
Tools for the FieldAs part of the Annenberg Institute's Tools for the Field, we test and develop programs and tools aimed to equalize and improve educational opportunities and to support more relevant and generative research on education. Tips·by·Text, EdInstruments.com, and EdWorkingPapers are examples of this work.
Student Well-Being and Educational JusticeStudents need a range of capabilities to live full lives and to contribute to the lives of others. Academic achievements certainly reflect some beneficial skills, but knowledge, skills and dispositions needed for flourishing extend beyond academics. Skills that relate to engagement, optimism, and the ability to work well with peers are just a few of the non-academic capabilities that contribute to student well-being. The Center for Student Well-Being and Educational Justice at the Annenberg Institute at Brown University works to understand the range of these capabilities and the educational institutions needed to provide children and youth with equal and excellent opportunities for their development. We are simultaneously developing frameworks for considering these capabilities, tools for improving their measurement, and analyses of educational approaches to support opportunities today.
