The Morningside Center Whole School Restorative Practices (RP)
Dr.  Anne Gregory

 

The Morningside Center Whole School Restorative Practices (RP) research project is a randomized control trial evaluation of a school wide discipline reform program based on integrating restorative practices, social emotional learning curriculum, and racial equity in K-12 public schools in Brooklyn, NY. We, Dr. Anne Gregory and her Rutgers Evaluation team at the Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology, are interested in recruiting highly motivated undergraduate research assistants to play a vital role in collecting data to evaluate the impact of the whole school RP and Racial Equity Project.

“I was hoping to gain some research experience through this project and I have gained that and then some. It was fun communicating with everyone and the students. This communication only increased the morale and the knowledge that RAs could possible gain through the project.”

 "Putting the time and effort into something that really matters really makes an impact on the bigger picture."

 "Only get involved in this if you really care about the issue at hand. That's what this is all about!"
