Committed to Educational Excellence

At a moment when postsecondary education is under increased scrutiny from the public and policymakers alike, and during rising polarization, CUE emphasizes the critical role higher education plays in creating and sustaining inclusive, just, and democratic societies.

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
