Culturally Relevant Pedagogy
The IUE is conducting research on culturally relevant pedagogy (Ladson-Billings, 1995). Culturally relevant pedagogy (CRP) asserts that successful teachers of marginalized students ensure that students have academic excellence, cultural competence, and sociopolitical awareness.

The IUE conducts and disseminates research to pre-service and in-service educators. Opportunities for UW-System students, PK-12 educators, and education researchers to participate in our projects are available. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
IUE Libguides are subject guides and resources about culturally relevant pedagogy housed on the UWM Libraries website.
Research Advisory Committee
The IUE Research Advisory Committee is a collaborative, interdisciplinary research team comprised of UW System colleagues and partner stakeholders. This committee investigates educational practices for urban school districts.
