At ICARE, we provide a high level of professional services to assist university researchers in developing projects that are relevant both to their disciplines and to the communities that surround us. We strive to assist researchers in applying their disciplines to real-world problems by connecting them with the needed colleagues and community partners.

The purpose of ICARE is to actively recruit and support research partnerships between College of Education faculty and faculty in other disciplines for applied research projects.  The specific goals of ICARE are as follows:

  1. Facilitate relationships between College of Education researchers and researchers in other colleges
