Center for Urban Education

The Center for Urban Education houses the School of Education's programs design to promote excellence and achievement among underserved populations, be it teachers in urban schools, first-generation college students, or high school students through our youth access and equity programs, the Liberty Partnerships Program (LPP) and the Upward Bound program.  Since 1986, CUE has been dedicated to improving the lives of low-income, first-generation, college-bound students and new immigrant youth by offering educational support and enrichment opportunities. We encourage you to learn more about our programs here.

  • Liberty Partnerships Program
  • Upward Bound Program
  • Teacher Opportunity Corps - A personalized mentoring program that supports the retention and professional development of future teachers studying at Pace University. The program supports the preparation of teacher candidates to become classroom educators and leaders who enable and empower students to learn and achieve, regardless of perceived limitations of abilities or environment, and celebrate the dynamic relationship between schools, families and communities to ensure the promise and integrity of students’ aspirations.
  • Teacher Leader Quality Partnership (TLQP)- The Pace Inquiry Learning Collaborative, funded though the New York State TLQP grant, develops capacity of high-need school partners to create communities that develop teachers’ skills in creating inquiry opportunities for students in all subject areas. In addition, the program also looks to formalize ways for teachers to ‘own’ inquiry-based learning work and adapt it to students at all learning levels.
