Services Overview

Tiered Service Delivery Framework

Great Lakes Equity Center’s and Midwest and Plains Equity Assistance Center's approach to resource and service delivery is grounded in a multi-tiered framework of technical assistance. Our goal is to engage in well-defined, content-rich technical assistance such that knowledge and expertise are shared in a way that results in transformative systemic change, as well as personal reflection and growth.

TIER ONE: EDUCATIONAL EQUITY RESEARCH & RESOURCES

We offer a variety of tools, publications, and resources to a broad public audience.

TIER TWO: EQUITY LEARNING NETWORKS

The Great Lakes Equity Center brings together role-alike stakeholders across district and state boundaries, supports peer-to-peer mentoring, and offers opportunities to share information quickly across individuals focused on similar problems of practice.

TIER THREE: SYSTEMIC EQUITY PARTNERSHIPS

We engage in sustained partnerships of transformative professional learning and improvement grounded in examination of local data and historical contexts and action-research case studies that bring practitioners and researchers together in inquiry. These partnerships are entered into through development of a formalized agreement with agency leadership, and include the development of a memorandum of understanding detailing the proposed project scope, timeline, and responsibilities of both the requesting agency and the Great Lakes Equity Center.
