The Center for Access, Success & Equity (CASE) was created to support faculty, students and community members in developing initiatives to address local and regional issues of access, success & equity for students in P-20 institutions. Our focus is to “turn research into practice” and thus have a direct impact on the educational outcomes of students by: conducting extensive research, offering professional services, and engaging in policy creation and reform, impacting the most persistent educational challenges - those which obstruct access, success and equity in traditionally underserved communities.
Through grants, faculty-led research teams, and our PhD program, the center engages in knowledge production and dissemination of new understandings that impact access, success & equity in education.
CASE brings research into practice, creating customized services for evaluation, professional learning, strategic planning, and technical assistance to education and community organizations, to achieve access, success & equity for all participants.
Through engagement in research and professional services, CASE shapes educational policies at the local, state and national level.
