Equity, Diversity, and Excellence
Thanks to grants from the Nellie Mae Foundation and the William Caspar Graustein Memorial Fund, CABE has created this Excellence and Equity section of our website. It provides information, articles, equity lenses, and assessment tools for Boards to use in examining policies and practices on issues of equity and diversity and ensuring that every student has the opportunity to thrive.
We hope you find these tools helpful. Check back periodically as more resources will be added.
