Alonzo A. Crim Center for Urban Educational Excellence Welcomes You!

Our Mission

We aim to ensure that no child is alienated from or by education within urban schools and communities. We believe that to accomplish this, we must first empower teachers by helping to foster a sense of connection for children, educators, and community members to each other and to the larger world.
Our vision, guided by the legacies of Dr. Lisa Delpit, Dr. Benjamin E. Mays, Dr. Alonzo A. Crim and Dr. Asa G. Hilliard, III is to ensure the availability of a prosperous and equitable school environment for our children who are least-served by urban schools so as to empower them and optimize the life chances of these children and families.

Exciting Changes in the Crim Center!

We are currently undergoing very exciting changes in the Crim Center. This summer our team is working diligently to rebrand the Crim Center and provide fresh new ways for you to stay connected and informed. Stay tuned for the September 2014 launch!
