The basic mission of the Department of Educational Psychology at the University of Utah is service grounded in research and disseminated through teaching. The inquiry function of the department is the generation of knowledge through research. First, this knowledge serves to translate a range of research validated practices into functional educational services for individuals from early childhood through late adulthood. Second, research forms the knowledge core for the effective instruction and training of licensed and credentialed students. The creation of a research knowledge base and the training of students are designed to serve the educational needs of the university, community, and state. The students trained by the Department of Educational Psychology will be the leadership professionals of tomorrow.
