Making community a vital part of education
Education faces constant challenges due to the rapidly changing world. Migration and residential patterns, technological advances, as well as economic, political and social conditions, create an environment for education that demands ongoing assessment. Building on the relationships between learning institutions and communities ensures that education is current, relevant and a cornerstone of academic success.
The York Centre for Education and Community (YCEC) is designed to support teaching and learning that is appropriate to students’ diverse needs, considerate of their cultural experiences, and supportive of their aspirations. To accomplish these goals, the Centre facilitates collaborative research in education, both in classrooms and in other settings.
