The Center for Urban Education and Policy (CUEP) exists to mobilize UNF’s resources to strengthen educational opportunities and outcomes of those living in urban communities.
CUEP works to link UNF’s expertise with key education stakeholders to create and sustain positive change in urban schools.
We at the University of North Florida Center for Urban Education
and Policy and the University of North Florida Institute for the Study of Race
and Ethnic Relations are deeply disturbed by the racist video that appeared
last night in an apparent reaction to the Black Lives Matter rally on campus.
We view this unsettling video as an opportunity to engage in deeper reflection
and conversation around how UNF can better practice its mission to provide
"an inspiring setting for our diverse community."
Our Center for Urban Education and Policy and the Institute for
the Study of Race and Ethnic Relations staff and affiliated faculty are
available to talk with anyone who feels targeted or otherwise unsafe on campus.
We particularly want to communicate directly and clearly to students, staff,
and faculty of color and specifically African American and Black students,
staff, and faculty. We support you. We also want to be public about our
commitment to you and your development and safety. A significant part of that commitment
is recognizing that we have a lot of work to both on the UNF campus and within
the Jacksonville community. We also want to assert our commitment to advocate
not for you, but with and alongside you, in ways that will build trust and
share wisdom, experiences, and power.
