Stanford education professor joins leadership team at California research center

Ben Domingue is named faculty director at Policy Analysis for California Education (PACE).

Stanford Graduate School of Education (GSE) Assistant Professor Ben Domingue has been named to a key role on the leadership team of Policy Analysis for California Education (PACE), joining as faculty director representing the GSE. 

PACE is an independent, nonpartisan research center housed at Stanford, working with scholars from California’s leading universities and with state and local decision makers to bridge the gap between research, policy, and practice at all levels of California’s education system. The center is led by faculty directors at Stanford University, the University of Southern California, the University of California at Davis, the University of California at Los Angeles, and the University of California at Berkeley.

Domingue joins current PACE faculty directors Christopher Edley, Jr. (UC Berkeley), Michal Kurlaender (UC Davis), Julie Marsh (USC), and Cecilia Rios-Aguilar (UCLA) in providing strategic leadership for the center, working in close partnership with Executive Director Heather Hough.

“In the months and years ahead, PACE will continue working with researchers, policymakers, and educators to improve outcomes for California’s students and to guide pandemic recovery,” said Hough. “Ben’s research is critical to this endeavor.”

His research focuses on how student outcomes can inform our understanding of student learning, teacher performance and the efficacy of programs and policies through the use of a wide range of data on student outcomes, including health and well-being, academic learning and student experience.

Domingue, a member of the steering committee at the Center for Education Policy Analysis (CEPA) at Stanford GSE, is also an assistant professor (by courtesy) in the Department of Sociology at Stanford and a faculty fellow in Stanford Population Health Sciences. He received his PhD from the University of Colorado at Boulder.

In taking on this role at PACE, Domingue replaces GSE Professor Deborah Stipek, who served as PACE’s faculty director at Stanford for three years and was involved with PACE for many years prior as a contributing researcher.
