• Peabody Professional Institutes (PPI) provide short-term, intensive educational experiences for professional educators and administrators during the summer. Designed with the same expectations for rigor and depth as Peabody College degree programs, the institutes rest on the philosophy that good practice is best derived from, and informed by, a strong theoretical base.
The NCSC is funded by a 5 year, $13.3 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education's Institute of Education Sciences. Its lead institution is Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. The center is housed on the campus of Peabody College, one of the nation's top graduate schools of education.
