Research Committee

The Research Committee coordinates the research activities of the association and collects and analyzes data that are relevant to the practice and the profession of school psychology. It is responsible for reviewing and approving all research undertaken by NASP workgroups (PDF), research partnerships with NASP, and all requests from individual researchers to access the NASP database or research samples comprised of NASP members. The Committee conducts the NASP Membership Survey every five years, the annual evaluation of the Executive Director, and awards research grants to students via its Graduate Student Research Grants program. For more information, contact the chair, co-chairs, or staff liaison.
