The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded EDC a three-year grant to continue leading the STEM Learning and Research Center (STELAR), a national initiative to address STEM learning opportunity gaps, ignite interest in STEM, and prepare young people for future careers in STEM.
The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) selected EDC to lead Opportunity 2.0, a five-year, $37.5 million project supporting out-of-school youth for better education, employment, and livelihood outcomes.
Through this new initiative, the Action Alliance will convene government agencies, corporations, and nongovernmental organizations to comprehensively and collectively address mental health and suicide prevention.
EDC experts will share strategies to prevent suicide and promote mental health at the 2020 American Association of Suicidology Virtual Conference on April 22–25. The theme of the conference is “Crossroads: Preventing Suicide and Building Lives Worth Living.”
The usual in-person format for the 2020 Comparative and International Education Society (CIES) conference was changed to a virtual format due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many EDC presenters are contributing to the virtual conference through live webinar sessions and through recording and posting their sessions to CIES 2020. EDC will provide recordings of CIES presentations on this page as they become available.
