Urban Education and Family

Urban Education and Family


The Urban Education and Family Transdisciplinary Core will create an Urban Education and Family Institute. This institute will be unique because of its transdisciplinary partnership among the School of Education, College of Humanities & Sciences, and the Wilder School for Public Policy.

The institute will serve as a hub and catalyst for a transdisciplinary community of scholars who are dedicated to equity and excellence for Black and LatinX learners.

Scholars will:

  • Design and develop culturally informed, transformational, curriculum with a focus on the science of learning, and culturally-sustaining pedagogy
  • Formulate strategies that foster educational attainment, such as creating a Center for Urban Education and Families and a Cradle to College Pipeline
  • Influence policy reform by constructing research strategies that have the greatest potential to dismantle educational inequities that lead to income inequalities that currently exist in Richmond Public Schools and surrounding counties
