Our Mission

The Region IV Western Educational Equity Assistance Center at Metropolitan State University of Denver is guided by its mission to provide, upon request, technical assistance and training for school boards, school districts, Tribal Education Agencies and other responsible governmental agencies to promote equitable education opportunities and access for all students. We seek to improve equity, access and participation in high quality, research-based, opportunities for education for all students and to reduce disparities between and among groups where they arise.

Our emphases are those problems of equity that are occasioned by desegregation on the basis of race, sex, religion, and national origin. We are also committed to improving access for all students to STEM—science, technology, engineering and math—as well as improving the school environment and school safety by helping schools address and prevent sexual harassment and bullying.
