About SLU PRiME: Over the past decade, the focus of education policymakers has shifted to the point where data and evidence are vital to decision-making. Missouri and the St. Louis region present an interesting case for education research through the growth of the charter school market; shifts in the traditional public school systems; and the implications of these changes for the state’s urban, suburban, and rural districts. Missouri policymakers, school leaders, teachers, and parents are now faced with more data on education than ever before and must grapple with education decisions based on these data. The School of Education at Saint Louis University launched the PRiME Center to serve as a third-party, objective analyst of data and information on education and education-related research. The PRiME Center provides straightforward access to Missouri school data, easily consumable reports and research, and a vital voice in the education decision-making process.

Context: Saint Louis University (SLU), established 1818, is the oldest institution of higher education west of the Mississippi River and is a world-class Catholic, Jesuit institution educating nearly 14,000 students. SLU’s 230-acre urban campus located in midtown Saint Louis, providing students, faculty, and staff a close-knit community in the middle of a lively city. In a 2018 interview with the
 Chronicle of Higher Education , SLU President Fred Pestello committed the University to doubling its research budget to $100 million and becoming a Carnegie One research institution in the next 7 years.

The School of Education (SOE) shares in the 470-year-old Jesuit tradition of excellence in education, focusing on the growth of the whole person. The purpose of Jesuit education is to develop men and women for and with others. Saint Louis University, and the School of Education, is committed to intellectual rigor and the use of knowledge for the betterment of our local, national, and international communities.
