Welcome to the DEPE Lab

Welcome to the Data, Equity, and Policy in Education Lab

Our goal for the lab is to serve as a repository for information and multi-disciplinary datasets. We also hope it will serve as a meeting space to help facilitate the exchange of data and ideas between researchers from multiple fields of study.

On this page you will be able to find information about us, events that are coming up in our speaker series, and what we are working on next.
