The Canadian Society for the Study of Education (CSSE-SCÉÉ) is the largest organization of professors, students, researchers and practitioners in education in Canada. CSSE-SCÉÉ is the major national voice for those who create educational knowledge, prepare teachers and educational leaders, and apply research in the schools, classrooms and institutions of Canada Founded in 1972, the bilingual CSSE-SCÉÉ is an umbrella organization consisting of several national constituent associations:
The objective of CSSE-SCÉÉ is to promote the advancement of Canadian research and scholarship in education. In order to fulfill its mandate, CSSE-SCÉÉ will:
- provide for the discussion of studies, issues and trends in education, and for the dissemination of research findings;
- promote exchanges among members and other educational researchers in Canada and internationally;
- foster partnerships and, through educational research, influence public policy and help determine the nature, structure and funding of the research agenda. CSSE-SCÉÉ endeavours to accomplish this objective through involving researchers reflective of the sociocultural diversity of Canada.
CSSE-SCÉÉ is governed by a board of directors consisting of an elected executive and the presidents of the constituent associations and of the graduate student committee, supported by a permanent staff in our Ottawa office.
