The Center for Research on Educational Opportunity, part of the University of Notre Dame's Institute for Educational Initiatives, conducts basic and applied research on schools and the learning process.
The Center for Research on Educational Opportunity (CREO) is a part of the Institute for Educational Initiatives at the University of Notre Dame. CREO seeks educational excellence and equity in American education through basic and applied research on schools and the learning process. CREO faculty and graduate students consider how certain factors—school organization, curriculum, teacher practices, student social relationships—interact with students’ background and achievement to affect their outcomes from early childhood through college and beyond. Consistent with the Institute’s commitment to social justice, special attention is given to vulnerable students and Catholic schools.
