Background and Mission
The Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) Institute for Poverty and Urban Education formed in February 2017 as a research center piloting interventions for students.
The Institute’s mission is to increase economic mobility for students in Northeast Ohio by researching inequities that occur before, during and after college and identifying and evaluating interventions that can reduce these inequities.
The Institute is particularly interested in reducing inequities in outcomes so that more under-resourced students have access to high-paying jobs that allow them to enjoy a middle-class lifestyle.
Tri-C faculty and administrators work every day to help students build successful lives and move into the middle class. The Institute will utilize their expertise to help individuals overcome educational barriers and increase economic mobility in the region.
