A top college of education and human development*, Peabody College makes a difference in the lives of thousands of people by creating new knowledge. Some of our most recent work focuses on understanding how cultural differences affect language skills, how public policy affects school administration, how communities can relieve adolescent depression or the effects of maternal depression on children, what does and does not work with federal support for homeless families, what is next for pre-K education programs, and how the state of Tennessee can improve delivery of education and human services.
In these and many other projects, Peabody partners with metropolitan, state, and national organizations on funded research projects. Our collaboration with the larger Vanderbilt community opens up even more possibilities for exploration.
