Community Engagement


Building on the College of Education and Allied Studies’ long-standing community partnerships, CRECE enhances and expands collaborative relationships throughout the Northern California with the goal of 1) supporting our partners in growing social justice-focused educational practices, 2) providing career support for our graduate students and alumni, and 3) building a network of social justice-focused educational practitioners throughout the Northern California.  In turn, this supports the preparation of future and current students.
