Change today, transform tomorrow

CECE works with colleges and universities to cultivate culturally engaging campus environments where diverse students thrive

The overarching aim of the CECE Project is to create and utilize tools to assist postsecondary institutions in their efforts to examine, understand, and improve their campus environments and maximize success among diverse student populations. The CECE Project moves beyond typical climate assessments that tend to focus on challenges in the environment. Instead, the CECE Project focuses on the types of environments that engage and support college students from all backgrounds.
