MCRR Mission

The mission of the Minnesota Center for Reading Research (MCRR) is to support a culture of engagement between scholars at the University of Minnesota and Pre-K-12 educators and community partners to connect instruction to literacy research. The goal of this collaborative research, development, and outreach is to ensure that all Pre-K through 12th grade students in diverse educational settings become capable and motivated readers and writers, and that educators and researchers engage together to address the opportunity gaps that impede literacy success for children and youth.

The MCRR aims to conduct, co-develop, and disseminate literacy research with Pre-K-12 educators and community partners. Our commitment to collaborative solutions to current instructional challenges strengthens the capacity of both researchers and educational leaders to achieve this significant aspiration.
