At the Center for Urban Education, we live out our mission through a variety of programs, events, and initiatives. While some projects only occur once, such as a book drive benefiting a certain community or cause, others are ongoing.

If you or your organization has a project in which you’d like to involve the Center, or if you would like suggestions or feedback on a potential project idea, don’t hesitate to contact us.
