Exemplary Contributions to Practice-Engaged Research Award


2017 Recipient

Ann M. Ishimaru
University of Washington

The Committee is impressed by Dr. Ann M. Ishimaru’s commitment to practice-engaged research both in content and delivery. One of her letters of support captured the sentiment: “In short, her work can be best understood as an effort to simultaneously build leadership and improve understanding of how to build it, especially in settings in which many participants have been systematically disempowered.” Dr. Ishimaru has taken her work and engaged with principals, parents, superintendents, and other stakeholders to improve the engagement of families and to strengthen communities. She has balanced her commitment to service and research in a way that is inspirational and a model for education researchers.        

The Exemplary Contributions to Practice-Engaged Research Award is presented to an education research scholar or scholars in recognition of collaborative project(s) between researchers and practitioners that have had sustained and observable effects on contexts of practice.
