We’re advancing equitable community change

The Urban Equity Collaborative organizes and supports diverse forms of community action and knowledge that challenges inequality, contributes to public debate, informs community action, and advances policy changes that positively impact marginalized communities. We employ collaborative processes that include and center community members’ needs and interests.

Our Mission

UEC’s mission is to strengthen community-based institutions, leaders, and advocacy around critical issues of urban inequality, and to incubate and disseminate durable research and policy strategies that shift power towards economic, racial, and gender justice and communities on the frontlines of struggle.

Our dedicated team of scholars and community advocates collaboratively enhance community efforts, empower voices, and co-create equitable strategies. We foster strong partnerships between communities and researchers, leveraging university resources to facilitate the transformation of research into actionable solutions.
