In announcing the 16 newly elected scholars, Michael Feuer, president of NAEd, said, “These individuals represent the rich diversity of fields that study education, and we are honored to welcome them to the National Academy of Education.”

The academy advances high quality education research and its use in policy formation and practice. Founded in 1965, NAEd now consists of 192 U.S. members and 11 foreign associates.

The School of Education ranks among the top schools in terms of NAEd membership, and Moss becomes the 11th faculty member from SoE to be elected. The others are Deborah Loewenberg Ball, Hyman Bass, David Cohen, Jacquelynne Eccles, Jeff Mirel, Elizabeth Birr Moje, Annemarie Palincsar and Brian Rowan. Emeritus faculty members include Magdalene Lampert and Valerie Lee.

“The academy provides an amazing opportunity for dialogue with scholars who hold diverse perspectives but share a common goal of improving education through research and others forms of scholarship. I feel privileged to be part of that dialogue,” Moss said.

In addition to serving on expert study panels that address pressing issues in education, members are deeply engaged in NAEd’s professional development programs such as the NAEd/Spencer Postdoctoral Fellowship Program and the NAEd/Spencer Dissertation Fellowship Program.

The academy is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2015.
