Envisioning Equity

The College of Education creates opportunities for faculty, students, and external groups to engage in dialogue on issues of equity and urban education to shape the future of education.

Equity Fellows

To make advancements toward our college goal in urban education and equity, the equity fellows program cultivates leadership in each department so that individual faculty and departments can define, deepen, and delineate the work toward the goal. Each equity fellow gets time to learn and develop an equity lens, and a $1000 stipend to put toward a project on curriculum redevelopment, improved practices for supporting preservice students, or a broader approach to work with K12 schools.

Envisioning Equity in Greater Baltimore’s Classrooms: A gathering hosted by Towson University and the College of Education

Black and brown youth in Greater Baltimore attend schools that do not always serve them well. Given the structural challenges that provide inequitable funding and resources for these youth, the gathering focused on how we can lift children up and help them meet their educational and long-term goals. The challenges young people face were recognized and the group gathered to explore ways to serve students in our schools better.
