With expertise spanning from economics to sociology, these MSU researchers are among 200 scholars from across the nation appearing on Rick Hess’ 2020 Edu-Scholar Public Influence Rankings.
The Edu-Scholar ranking honors researchers who are considered to have the greatest influence on education practice and policy.

The Edu-Scholar rankings are calculated based on scores in nine categories, such as citations via Google Scholar, news coverage, online mentions and books. The list is compiled from last year’s list of scholars plus at-large selections by a committee of scholars.
