Division VP

Welcome to the AERA Division A Webpage:

We are a scholarly community dedicated to supporting equitable learning environments for all students. While the focus of Division A is school leadership and supervision, our members engage in a variety of research interests that include curriculum, community contexts, educational policy, and leadership preparation.

Join us and consider submitting an AERA conference proposal to one of our five sections:

  • Section 1: Leadership
  • Section 2: School Organization and Effects
  • Section 3: School and District Improvement
  • Section 4: School Contexts and Community
  • Section 5: Leadership Preparation & Development

We also have exciting opportunities for graduate students, faculty, and other professionals to get involved with various committees like the Graduate Student Council; Equity, Inclusion, and Action Committee; Early Career Faculty Committee, Newsletter Committee; and Division A Awards committees. There are also opportunities to apply for awards that recognize Division A members for their dedicated efforts. We have three awards: 1) Outstanding Dissertation; 2) Emerging Scholar; and 3) Excellence in Research.

I hope that you will consider joining this exciting community of educational researchers.
