Urban Education Week

Categories: Past Events

Urban Education Week is a signature event of The Urban Education Collaborative. This week positively promotes supporting urban schools and their various stakeholders.  From our National Conference, Parent Town Hall Meeting, Documentary Screening, Volunteering in selected public schools and other related events, we have intentionally chosen to make a positive impact on the education system.  Our goal is to uplift urban schools in our geographic area to make sure all students receive the education they deserve from the educational system.  We ask that you review all of our events and become involved in as many as possible to support our efforts.  You can email us at urban-ed@uncc.edu for more information.
