Mission and Strategy
CLARA’s mission is to promote equitable educational practices that foster learner agency through powerful research and impactful evaluation. Our work drives scalable programming that cultivates the unique potential of all learners to decide about important aspects their own learning, create learning experiences with personal relevance, and achieve academic success and socio-emotional wellbeing.
CLARA: Decide. Create. Achieve.
CLARA collaborates across disciplines and pedagogies to envision a future where individuals are agents of their own learning.
Research & Evaluation
CLARA designs, conducts, and seeks funding for high-quality research and evaluation to provide evidence for solutions that foster learner agency.
ACTION is an important part of the CLARA name because it reflects the fact that we do more than conduct research—we develop and experiment with programs to expand opportunities for learner agency to become fundamental to all educational settings.
