A Message from the President- Dr. Amy Ryan

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.”


A vital aspect to this work is providing a forum to cultivate the next generation of scholars, policy makers, practitioners, and activists. To this end, the NEERO Board is excited to continue the new Undergraduate Research Forum – a specialized conference strand dedicated to showcasing the research of emerging scholars. Undergraduate students will be presented with the opportunity to share condensed versions of current research and to collaborate with the larger NEERO community.

NEERO welcomes ALL submissions and encourages submissions that are aligned with the theme that seek to expand the knowledge base and challenge current perceptions about the state of education. We look forward to partnering with you in the spring and to launch new pathways for future scholars.
