The President and Executive Board of the New England Educational Research Organization (NEERO) invite you to submit proposals for the 2020 Annual Conference on Wednesday, May 6 through Friday, May 8, 2020 at the Sheraton Portsmouth Harborside Hotel in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.


Building on the 2020 American Educational Research Association conference theme, “The Power and Possibilities for the Public Good When Researchers and Organizational Stakeholders Collaborate,” the New England Education Research Organization invites submissions that fit under the conference theme “Leveraging Educational Research for Collective Good.”

On behalf of the New England Educational Research Organization, we invite undergraduate students, graduate students, professionals, and faculty to explore the possibilities and promise of collaborative research across stakeholders and the impact of this work on the larger education community. NEERO welcomes ALL submissions and encourages submissions that are aligned with the theme that seek to expand the knowledge base and to highlight collaborative engagements between researchers and stakeholders.
