The Alonzo A. Crim Center for Urban Educational Excellence’s Urban Education Think Tank (UETT) is now accepting applications for the 2014-2015 academic year.

The think tank is a research-based, self- contained academic community whose membership is reflective of several disciplines and whose scholarship focuses on questions and solutions related to urban education.  The UETT promotes and facilitates scholarship, leadership and empowerment through critical research that focuses on urban education.  The mission of the UETT is to develop scholars who engage in urban education research and service that embraces cultural consciousness, social justice, community development and transformation.

Membership is open to any doctoral student interested in research and scholarship in urban education or a related field.  Preference will be given to students who are actively working on dissertation research.  Members of the think tank are provided access to Crim Center resources (e.g. programs and partnerships) and will receive limited funding for travel. Applications are due by Sept. 2, 2014.
