Community University Empowerment Fund (CUE)

CUE provides seed grants to innovative, socially engaged projects that improve conditions and the quality of life for communities of color. CUE projects leverage the expertise of faculty, the passion of student scholars, and the experiences of community partners. They increase awareness on issues impacting communities of color that are often rendered invisible in mainstream media and help communities inform policy changes and design or implement solutions.

In addition to empowering communities in relevant and meaningful ways, the Community-University Empowerment projects enable faculty to apply their research and develop case studies for teaching and provide student scholars with opportunities to practice their critical thinking and problem solving skills.
