Advancing educational instruction through research, technical assistance, and professional development


Our Mission

From translating research into practice to providing online professional development, the Vaughn Gross Center for Reading and Language Arts (VGC) emphasizes scientifically based research and is dedicated to improving instruction for all students, especially struggling readers, English language learners, and special education students.

Dedicated to high-quality research, VGC works with The Meadows Center for Preventing Educational Risk (MCPER) as combined Organized Research Units within the College of Education at The University of Texas at Austin. Both centers promote academic success for students in Texas and across the nation by improving education outcomes.
