Recruitment Education Retention
The Center for Excellence in Urban and Rural Education (CEURE) collaborates with school districts, collegiate partners, and community stakeholders to improve the educational and life outcomes of children attending urban and rural schools. The center supports efforts to recruit, educate, and retain teachers to meet the needs of culturally, linguistically, and economically diverse children.
Since CEURE’s inception, the center has supported more than 45 initiatives, partnering with 175 schools in nine counties, recruited over 100 Buffalo State faculty members in CEURE projects and secured federal and private grants totaling over $13 million dollars.
The general operation of the center is possible due to the sponsorship of the New York State Legislature. A variety of federal, state, and private funding supports our programs.
