The Center for Educational Equity and Intercultural Research (CEEIR), situated within the LaFetra College of Education (LFCE) at the University of La Verne, fosters advocacy for social justice and empowerment through education, research, and collaboration. LFCE recognizes the need to develop educators who can apply research based approaches to their work while maintaining the social consciousness to address inequities in current educational structures. The Center’s ultimate goal is to be a leader in the movement to improve the opportunities to educational attainment for students in urban and rural communities both locally and globally.
