Our mission is to promote enjoyment, engagement, and enthusiasm for learning in teachers and students at all levels of education through high-quality research and outreach on innovative teaching approaches. Our work in talent development and gifted education is based on practical applications of over four decades of research, as are the direct services we provide to teachers, administrators, researchers, and policy makers throughout the world.
Our faculty and research teams are leading experts in giftedness, creativity, and talent development. In addition to other large research projects, the Center houses the nation's only federally-funded research center in gifted education (National Center for Research on Gifted Education [NCRGE]) and conducts Confratute (conference/institute), an internationally renowned professional learning experience in talent development, now in its fifth decade.
