Center for Urban Education’s (CUE) Impact on Equity Gaps

CUE’s impact of closing equity gaps at partner institutions is achieved by engaging various actors on campus (i.e. faculty, administration, staff) through a process of self-inquiry. When various practitioners engage in this change process, they improve student success outcomes and also have the tools and framework to continuously reassess their practices, policies, and structures that all impact student success.
