2019 Equity Leaders Institute - Equity Innovator Recognition Program

Midwest & Plains Equity Assistance Center

Equity Innovator Recognition Program  

 

Equity Innovator Recognition Program showcases local and state education agencies that have engaged in systemic equity partnership with the Midwest & Plains Equity Assistance Center (MAP Center) and demonstrate system-wide transformation towards educational equity. The Midwest & Plains Equity Assistance Center seeks to select one systemic partner to receive the Equity Innovator recognition.

 

We invite current and former Tier III Equity Systemic Partners whose partnership with the center contributed to systemic change towards educational equity to apply for the Equity Innovator recognition. The recipient of the Equity Innovator exemplifies how equity-focused innovations are leveraged to expand systems’ capacities to provide robust, effective opportunities to learn for all students; and ensure student access to and participation in safe, inclusive, high-quality education regardless of and responsive to race, sex/gender, national origin, and religion (Thorius, Maxcy, & Th¡ Nguyên, 2011). Honorees will present at a special recognition luncheon during the 2019 Equity Leaders Institute in Indianapolis, Indiana, receive an honorarium for their participation, and be featured in a partner profile that will be disseminated throughout the center's region and posted on the center's website. 

 

Who can apply?

  • All past and present tier III partners of the Great Lakes Equity Center or Midwest & Plains Equity Assistance Center.
  • State education agencies (SEAs) that currently have or have had in the past a signed MOU with the MAP Center and/or the Great Lakes Equity Center
  • School districts (LEAs) that currently have or have had in the past a signed MOU with the MAP Center and/or the Great Lakes Equity Center.
