Division H represents a collective of graduate students and professionals from a myriad of fields; policy (local, state, and federal educational programs), higher education, P-12, with an abundance of research and practical skillsets. At the graduate level, Division H encourages students wishing to follow a passionate career conducting research, evaluation, and assessment in schools, P-12, to take full advantage of resources shared by a diverse membership pool whom stem from a variety of fields. These members can be found frequenting events at our centennial meeting in April 2016.

Contact Glynn Ligon at firstname.lastname@example.org to contribute your districts’ papers and publications, AERA papers, papers from other conferences, and other articles of interest to our members.
As the division representatives, we are looking forward to continuing the coffee mentorship program this year, where we pair graduate students with more experienced scholars based on their research interests. We also look forward to hosting a fireside chat highlighting successful university-school district partnerships (e.g., internships, graduate courses taught by faculty and district personnel where students explore district data) and the work that has resulted because of these reciprocal relationships. We also look forward to hosting a graduate student Division H poster session. In addition, we look forward to the Division H graduate student in-progress research round table session, where we share information about Division H with graduate students and experienced scholars provide feedback to students on their in-progress research.
We have several campus liasons including David Marshall of Virginia Commonwealth University, Nicole Wang of Penn State University, and Kisong Kim of St. John’s University. The purpose of these liasons is to encourage others to get involved in Division H by joining our Facebook page or following us on Twitter. We also encourage students to apply to present at the in-progress research roundtable and/or engage in coffee mentorship.
