Committed to Educational Excellence

The Center for University Excellence at American University cultivates new knowledge for the improvement of a learned society and the broader public good. CUE is an enabling institution that brings university research expertise to pressing problems in the public domain. We emphasize the critical role higher education plays in creating and sustaining inclusive, just, and democratic societies. Our focus is research, discourse, and public engagement with the most pressing questions facing society and higher education today.

For the next several years CUE will examine three overarching areas of inquiry. They include:

  1. Extremism, Polarization, and Conflict in Higher Education in the U.S. and Globally
  2. Undergraduate Student Progress, Academic Success, and Inclusive Diversity
  3. Strengthening the Academic Infrastructure and the Use of Technology
