Centro de Estduios de Politicas y Practicas en Educacion (CEPPE UC)
The Center for Studies of Policies and Practices in Education of the UC (CEPPE UC) has as a priority mission to carry out advanced interdisciplinary research in policies and practices in education, considering the plurality of existing approaches both in society and in the academy, starting from the capacities distributed throughout the UC, in order to improve the evidence base available to society and the political system, as well as educational and professional institutions, to understand and respond to the educational demands of the country.
The Center is the product of an alliance between four Faculties of the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile. Through the union of its research and training capabilities, its association has as a shared vision to achieve excellence and equity in education, and to promote dialogue between the field of research, public policies and the daily work of educators.
CEPPE UC was born in 2007, when the Catholic University, together with the Universidad de la Frontera and the Alberto Hurtado University, was awarded the 1st Competition for Advanced Research Centers in Education with the CIE-01 project: “Center of Studies of Policies and Practices in Education ” . The contest, belonging to CONICYT's Associative Research Program (PIA), aims to contribute to the financing of centers that articulate and enhance multiple capacities in order to contribute to national efforts to improve the quality and equity of education.See more
