Education & Social Policy

Dear CRESP Community:

With the rest of the University of Delaware, our nation, and the world, CRESP has been responding to the quickly changing turn of events as we all navigate the global health pandemic created by the spread of COVID-19.

Like most organizations and institutions, our staff at CRESP is working remotely to promote ‘social distancing’, though our work continues and most projects are only modestly delayed. If we can be of any assistance to our colleagues during this time, please feel free to contact us at

We hope that you and your loved ones are safe and doing well. We will work through this together and we remain dedicated to continuing our mission to improve outcomes for children, youth, adults, and families.

—CRESP Directors


The Center for Research in Education and Social Policy (CRESP) within the College of Education and Human Development at the University of Delaware conducts rigorous research, program evaluation, and policy analysis to help practitioners, policymakers, and the researchers who collaborate with them better understand critical issues in education, community health, and human services.  Learn more about what we do.


CRESP evaluators are committed to supporting faculty and staff in their research, quality improvement, and grant evaluation needs. Learn more.
