Center for Access, Success & Equity (CASE)


Welcome to CASE

The Center for Access, Success & Equity (CASE) was created to support faculty, students and community members in developing initiatives to address local and regional issues of access, success & equity for students in P-20 institutions. Our focus is to “turn research into practice” and thus have a direct impact on the educational outcomes of students by: conducting extensive research, offering professional services, and engaging in policy creation and reform, impacting the most persistent educational challenges - those which obstruct access, success and equity in traditionally underserved communities.

Through grants, faculty-led research teams, and our PhD program, the center engages in knowledge production and dissemination of new understandings that impact access, success & equity in education.

Professional Services
CASE brings research into practice, creating customized services for evaluation, professional learning, strategic planning, and technical assistance to education and community organizations, to achieve access, success & equity for all participants.

Policy Engagement
Through engagement in research and professional services, CASE shapes educational policies at the local, state and national level.

Real Talk Series

Small group discussion, Q&A and resource sharing for all educators who want to explore how to talk with their students about these topics – from early childhood to college classrooms. Series takes place at the Glassboro campus on the third Tuesday of the month from 5 - 7p.m. in the Learning Resource Center South, James Hall - Room 1140.

CASE Book Club

Through a close read and discussion of three powerful texts, this book club is an opportunity to challenge oneself with a deeper understanding of equity. We will engage in courageous conversations about recognizing the systems of power and privilege that exist in society, and then learn to situate ourselves within those systems with a more nuanced understanding. This deeper understanding will inspire us to take action to change ourselves, and work within our systems to engage in reflective and impactful discussions.
