Centers and Projects

Institute on Education and the Economy
Website: http://www.tc.columbia.edu/centers/iee

The Institute on Education and the Economy (IEE) is an interdisciplinary policy research center that focuses its attention on the interaction between education and the economy. The Institute is dedicated to carrying out research that will help improve educational policy and practice at the local, state, and national levels and to developing an active research community of TC students and faculty interested in these topics. IEE's research agenda includes issues such as the changes in the nature, organization, and skill requirements of work; education reforms designed to address the changing needs of the workplace; the educational value of work; learning on the job; the school-to-work model; the design and effectiveness of work-based learning, employer participation in education; academic and industry-based skill standards; and related education reforms. IEE is directed by Professor Thomas Bailey, an economist in the Department of International and Transcultural Studies. The Institute's permanent staff includes sociologists, economists, and psychologists. Several Teachers College faculty and faculty from other schools at Columbia as well as other universities and research organizations also work with the Institute.

IEE also offers many opportunities for graduate students to work on research projects under the guidance of faculty and senior researchers. Recent activities have included the development of joint faculty-student study groups on work-based learning and on community colleges. Staff at the Institute have been influential in the development and implementation of the School to Work Opportunities Act of 1994 and the Educate America, Goals 2000 Act of 1994.Reports of research findings, working papers, and non-technical Briefs are available through the IEE website, or for a nominal cost. The Institute also houses the Community College Research Center (see the description of the Community College Research Center).
