Powering educational systems by generating, translating and disseminating the best research, information and knowledge
SERVE Center - The University of North Carolina at Greensboro

Welcome to SERVE Center

SERVE word cloudWe believe that education is advanced through knowledge, innovation and collaborative action. For the past two decades we have worked with educators and policymakers to improve education for all students by: 

  • Building new knowledge through rigorous and relevant research and evaluation;
  • Translating the best of existing knowledge into relevant, user-friendly products; and
  • Transforming knowledge into action through customized professional development and technical assistance.  

What makes SERVE Center unique

We believe educational improvement is a partnership and we focus on doing work that is important and directly relevant to policymakers and practitioners. We respect the expertise and experience our clients have and work with them to develop customized services to meet their needs, while always maintaining the highest standards of quality.  Our size means that we are large enough to have the expertise you need, but we are also small enough to provide individualized attention and be responsive to your needs. Our affiliation with the University of North Carolina at Greensboro gives us access to all of the resources of a university.  At SERVE Center, we start with where you are and take you to where you want to go.
