Dr. Julie Edmunds (SERVE Center) received a continuation of funding from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill for the project “Early College HIgh School – Efficacy Goal 3 Retrospective.” This is the final year of a three-year consultation. Doug Lauen, Associate Professor of Public Policy at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, is doing a quasi-experimental replication of the original lottery-based experimental study on early colleges, looking at the impact of 75 early colleges in North Carolina. Edmunds is helping with the research design and analyses.
Edmunds is program director for Secondary School Reform at SERVE Center at UNCG and conducts research on issues primarily related to high school reform. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in History from Yale University, a Master of Education from UNCG, and a PhD in Education from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
