Research Center

The College of Education (COE) Research Center provides research and evaluation support to students and faculty, as well as other constituents outside of the COE. We aim to support constituents in their goals of designing contextually relevant studies and meaningful findings that can be used to support decision-making, continued program development, and contributions to the field.

Methodological consultation is available for qualitative, quantitative, and mix-methods approaches. The Research Center staff can help by discussing various aspects of a study such as suggesting or critiquing a research design, recommending an appropriate analysis to address a research question(s), assisting in the interpretation of the results of an analysis, or serving as a sounding board for research ideas. Our support efforts also include connecting students and faculty with relevant resources such as data analysis software, readings, webinars, and other scholarly materials.

The Research Center is housed on the third floor of the Garrett Teacher Education Center at Sam Houston State University. Staff are available to meet online or in-person. Appointments can be made by contacting
