Our people

The Centre for Research in Educational and Social Inclusion (CRESI) is one of the largest research concentrations in the world that is focused on contributing to new knowledge about issues related to educational and social inclusion.

CRESI has a diverse multidisciplinary membership from which interdisciplinary teams can be quickly formed around the needs of a project. Members include social psychologists, sociologists, policy analysts, developmental psychologists, educational psychologists, linguists, and critical scholars. They have broad expertise including critical studies, critical race studies, sociology, critical literacy, applied linguistics, social psychology, educational psychology, child development, policy studies, and curriculum studies.

CRESI is directed by Professor Anna Sullivan and Dr. Jamie SIsson.  CRESI is also led by an Executive Group who oversees the implementation of the research strategy and advises the director on a range of strategic matters.
