UNCG researchers and their collaborators have received approximately $500,000 to study the impacts of COVID on student learning. The funding is part of the NC Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI) and North Carolina Collaboratory’s $6.73 million investment in 20 projects rooted at universities across North Carolina.

“This unique program will strengthen partnerships between state education leaders and academic researchers on a priority issue that impacts many North Carolinians,” the NC Collaboratory said in their announcement.

UNCG faculty from multiple disciplines are spearheading two projects and contributing to a third. Across these projects, they are bringing their dedication to community-engaged research, real-world impacts, and diverse learners to this state-wide effort.
