Education and Human Development

Peabody has been ranked as the top graduate school of education in the nation during the 2009, 2010, and 2011 editions of the U.S. News & World Report graduate school rankings. Peabody trains undergraduate and graduate students and conducts substantial research in human learning and cognition, some of it in conjunction with Vanderbilt University Medical Center. It is now the host of two government-funded national research centers: the National Center on School Choice and the National Center on Performance Incentives. The Vanderbilt Kennedy Center is one of just a few organizations in the U.S. to be a member of three federally funded national networks devoted to research, service, and training related to developmental disabilities: the Eunice Kennedy Shriver Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Center, University Centers for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities, and Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities. The Center addresses autism through the Treatment and Research Institute for Autism Spectrum Disorders. 

Vanderbilt University is one of only 12 universities in the country to rank in the top 25 of two very prestigious lists, U.S. News & World Report's Best Colleges and Federal R & D Obligations for Science/Engineering. We also receive more than $28 million in private support for our research, with many of those dollars coming from our corporate partners.
