As a highly unique urban education studies Ph.D. program in the United States, with a faculty that is over 60% faculty of color and doctoral cohorts that average more than 60% students of color, we focus on an in-depth understanding of the complex assets and inequities within the urban education environment.
As a student in this program, you will develop a keen understanding of the many assets in the urban environment and the challenges urban schools and communities face, including:
- Responding to ethnic, racial, linguistic, income, sexual orientation, disability, and cultural assets and inequities within formal and informal education settings and the urban context
- Understanding the nature of schooling and the communities they serve
- Interrogating the complex educational policy and political environment in which urban schools exist
