VIEW PROJECT


StudyPlace serves those who seek to advance the shared understanding of education, communication, and culture by filling a gap in the way universities organize the study of education. Great research universities simultaneously support both academic inquiry and professional preparation with respect to the vital sectors of life. They generally include both departments of sociology and schools of social work, departments of economics and schools of business, departments of politics and schools of public affairs, departments of biology and physiology and schools of medicine.

Provisions for the study of education rarely strike such a balance, however, for there are few departments of education independent of the professional concerns dominant in schools of education. As a step towards including education as an academic study in the arts and sciences, StudyPlace will provide an online resource for scholars and students whose interest in education is more academic than professional.
