Center for Research and Development in International Education
The Center for Research and Development in International Education (CRaDIE) was established in 2005 as a place to focus the School of Education’s efforts in international and cross-cultural research. Based on an array of innovative research and development initiatives on the international front, CRaDIE has focused many of its activities in Africa.
The center encourages international and cross-cultural outreach activities to clients in K-12, higher education, governmental settings, and nongovernmental organizations at home and abroad. CRaDIE coordinates faculty research and scholarship in the international dimension of the Virginia Tech School of Education. The center also supports and expands the collaborative research efforts by faculty and graduate students with other universities and institutions of higher learning throughout the United States and in other countries.
