Summary

Research consulting services provided by an operational research and services unit of the College of Education at Memphis State University are described. The university is comprehensive, multi-purpose, public, and urban. Of concern are activities of the unit's professional staff that involve application of research-related expertise to perform assigned responsibilities. Attention is directed to the history and purpose of the unit, clientele and services, support personnel and facilities, contributions, and challenges. The primary target population of the Bureau of Educational Research and Services consists of faculty who are involved in research and development. In addition to informing College of Education faculty about external funding and university research grants, direct services are offered, including training in proposal writing and conducting special studies. Assistance is also given to other university units through consultation and conducting research. Bureau staff have also been involved in conducting and assisting with projects for external agencies, including school districts, and state and federal education agencies. Contractual activities have included needs assessments, district-wide surveys, project evaluations, test development, and staff training. (SW)
