The Center for the Study of Regional Competitiveness in Science & Technology at Washington University in St. Louis is dedicated to exploring questions about human capital and policy environment in the region. Staff members don't limit themselves to those questions, though, and this website provides additional information about their work and research projects. First-time visitors shouldn't miss the About section for additional materials on staff missions and goals. The homepage also contains information about recent conferences, media appearances, and so on. Scholars and policy folks will want to click on the Research Tools area as well. Here they will find resources like the St. Louis Regional Database Project, which contains information about St. Louis area students, teachers, and communities. Moving on, the Reports area within the Downloads section contains recent articles produced by staff members. Titles include "Putting the 'Urban' in Mathematics Education Scholarship" and "Epidemiology and Education Research: Dialoguing about Disparities."
