An historic event occurred during the New York Convention with the official launching of the NAEA Research Commission. The Research and Knowledge goal of the current NAEA Strategic Plan called for creation of the Commission in order to: “…conduct research and generate knowledge that enriches and expands visual arts education and widely share that research and knowledge.” The NAEA Research Commission is intended to meet the ongoing research needs of the field and our profession. It will facilitate, coordinate, and communicate about research that relates to the needs of practitioners and other stakeholders concerned with understanding critical questions of importance to the field and for providing the highest quality of art education possible in our schools and educational institutions.
Leading the Commission will be John Howell White, Chair of the Commission, and Graeme Sullivan, Associate Chair of the Commission. Commissioners include Kelly Berwager, Chris Grodoski, Diane Scully, Melody Milbrandt, Randi Korn, Ralph Caouette, Douglas Blandy, Mary Hafeli, Enid Zimmerman, Mary Ann Stankiewicz, Bob Sabol, and Deborah Reeve.
In the coming months, the Research Commission will create a research agenda, with input from NAEA members and the field, and begin implementing its ongoing mission to support the goals of the NAEA Strategic Plan, expand the research base of the field, meet the needs of all members, and inform the public.
