CEURE collaborates with school districts, collegiate partners, and community stakeholders to improve the educational and life outcomes of children attending urban and rural schools. The center supports efforts to recruit, educate, and retain teachers to meet the needs of culturally, linguistically, and economically diverse children. CEURE provides a systemic hub that coordinates and administers resources and services to constituent partners. All CEURE activities are integrated through existing departments and professional programs at Buffalo State. CEURE is able to connect Buffalo State’s teacher education programs with projects that form substantive school improvement initiatives.
