The International Association of Research Scholars and Administrators (IARSA) is an international learned society for students, teachers, research scholars, educators, and administrators who are interested in the foundations of education research. IARSA is an organisation primarily comprised of college and university professors who teach and research in the field of education research. The role of IARSA provides a cross-disciplinary forum wherein scholars gather to exchange and debate ideas. This cross-disciplinary commitment of the association creates a landscape for the discussion of broader policy issues such as minority studies, gender studies, multicultural education, democracy, and issues of educational equality and equity. Our membership is dedicated to examining issues in education research from a plurality of academic viewpoints and perspectives.
