The Literacy Institute, a partnership formed between the Virginia Literacy Foundation and Virginia Commonwealth University’s School of Education and Center for Public Policy, was launched in 2003 to ensure that Virginia’s public policy makers are kept aware of the problem of illiteracy in the Commonwealth and to directly combat that problem through research and development projects.

The Literacy Institute mission

The Literacy Institute at Virginia Commonwealth University advances the quality and accessibility of literacy instruction and support services across the lifespan through professional learning, research and development, evaluation, and public policy.
