He received an Ed.D. in Policy Analysis and Evaluation Research in 1984 from Harvard University and was a professor in the School of Education at the University of Michigan from 1998 until 2005.

Raudenbush is a leading scholar on quantitative methods for studying child and youth development within social settings such as classrooms, schools, and neighborhoods. He is best known for his work on developing hierarchical linear models, with broad applications in the design and analysis of longitudinal and multilevel research.

Raudenbush has been the Scientific Director of the Project on Human Development in Chicago Neighborhoods, an ambitious study of how family, neighborhood and school settings shape the academic learning, social development, mental health and exposure to violence of children growing up in Chicago. He is currently studying the development of literacy and math skills in early childhood with implications for instruction; and methods for assessing school and classroom quality.

Raudenbush is a member of the National Academy of Sciences, American Academy of Arts and Sciences and the recipient of the American Educational Research Association award for Distinguished contributions to educational research.
