SUPER: Save-University Partnerships for Education Research
The Save-University Partnership for Education Research (SUPER) Initiative brings together Save the Children staff and university-based researchers to investigate topics of mutual interest. Save the Children benefits from expert inputs to build its evidence base on effective programming while the researcher benefits from access to a field site to further his/her research agenda and career. This collaboration moves both the theory and the practice of international education forward.
SUPER Research Fellows have already or are now collaborating with Save the Children staff on such investigations as: early childhood program quality in the Philippines, the safety and security of students in Malawian primary schools, community schools cost effectiveness in Haiti, teacher training impact in Nicaragua, and strategies to ensure girls’ education in Pakistan.
Save the Children’s university partners include: Columbia University Teachers College, George Washington University, Harvard University, Stanford University, University of Maryland, University of Massachusetts at Amherst, University of Minnesota, University of Pennsylvania, and University of Wisconsin.
In 2007-08, SUPER will engage university-based researchers and Save the Children staff to focus on four key topic areas:
