Office of Strategic Engagement

Office of Strategic Engagement - 1252x450-96

Welcome to the VCU School of Education’s Office of Strategic Engagement. Being a transformative educator who imagines possibilities and takes action can be a challenge. We want to help with that by being a resource and a partner. We collaborate with regional, national and international communities who seek research-informed practices to innovatively prepare educators to work effectively in urban and high needs schools that have been historically marginalized.

The Office of Strategic Engagement customizes professional learning opportunities focused on creating equity in schools and communities through culturally responsive best practices explicitly focused on educator- and community-implicit biases. Our professional learning opportunities reflect VCU’s I-cubed efforts of urban transformation through collaborations and partnerships with local schools and communities focused on topics of diversity, equity and inclusion for Black and LatinX school children. Training opportunities are designed for pre-service and current PreK-12 teachers and leaders with intentional purpose on addressing the racial, socio-economic and cultural inequities within Richmond area schools.
