Institute for Educational Research & Service (IERS)

The Institute for Educational Research and Service (IERS) designs, evaluates, and disseminates programs that support the well-being of students and communities. Since 1957, IERS has collaborated with numerous schools, community groups, federal, state and tribal agencies to provide effective, data-driven research models that enhance the social development and academic achievement of all learners.  Presently, our focus areas include early childhood development through our award winning Co-Teach Preschool, school safety and emergency management through our Montana Safe Schools Center, and youth and community behavioral/mental health programs through our National Native Children's Trauma Center.

IERS' office hours are Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m Mountain Time. Please feel free to contact us at any time.
