Our diverse portfolio of programs includes a whole-school partnership model, a focused math tutorial program, NSF-funded afterschool programs, and more. All programs emerge from needs identified by community-engaged colleagues and community leaders, guided by principles of shared vision and values, mutuality and respect, transparency and communication, shared decision making, and commitment. As a research university, we integrate evidence-based research with our community’s vast knowledge.
