Center for Access, Success, and Equity (CASE)


Welcome to CASE

The CASE Center was created to support faculty, students and community members to develop initiatives that will address local and regional issues of access, success, and equity for students in P-20 institutions. Our focus is to “turn research into practice” and have a direct impact on the educational outcomes of students by completing extensive research, offering professional services, and engaging in policy creation and reform that impact the most persistent educational challenges, those that obstruct access, success, and equity in traditionally underserved communities.

Through grants, faculty-led research teams, and our Ph.D program, the center engages in knowledge production and dissemination of new understandings that impact access, success, and equity in education.

Professional Services
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, and equity for all participants.

Policy Engagement
Through engagement in research and professional services, CASE shapes educational policies at the local, state, and national level.
