Research at our Faculty brings together a variety of perspectives on education. Our expertise is therefore diverse and multidisciplinary. Our research leads to change in educational policy and practice, and our researchers engage in outreach initiatives, and in local, provincial, national and international partnerships.

International research is both a Faculty and University priority and is facilitated by a number of projects, partnerships, agreements, and memberships in consortia. The Faculty hosts international scholars at its colloquia, symposia, and for extended research visits.

The Faculty also hosts the Rosa Bruno-Jofré Symposium in Education (RBJSE), an interdisciplinary symposium that provides graduate students with a supportive and affordable opportunity to present and discuss their research or work-in-progress with colleagues, faculty, and practitioners from the field. RBJSE highlights current research being undertaken by graduate students at Queen’s University in paper presentations, roundtable discussions, and poster presentations. The event occurs in the spring of each year. Visit the RBJSE webpage for the most up-to-date information on the symposium.

In addition, the Faculty publishes Encounters on Education (in three languages), and the Queen's Education Letter, which engages educators and the public in a discussion of current educational issues.

Our research is supported generously by both internal and external research funding, which enables our faculty members to engage graduate students in their programs.

Our researchers are supported by the Queen's Research Mentors Program. The Mentors have volunteered their time to act in a variety of capacities, including assistance in the award nomination process; assistance in the peer review of funding applications; mentoring; and celebrating success.
