About Creative Corridor Center for Equity

The Creative Corridor Center for Equity (C3E) works with public systems in Iowa to build inclusive and vibrant communities. Our communities have experienced tumultuous change in the past decade as our population has diversified and we strive to bring 21st century practices to a less effective 20th century education system. C3E develops collaborative approaches to embrace racial diversity and overcome the disparities in experiences and outcomes that our residents of color face. The Creative Corridor Center for Equity was created to develop a systematic, collaborative approach to overcoming challenges in urban school districts. With partnerships that extend north to Minneapolis, MN, we expand the networks, time, talent, and treasure to support our youth at home and throughout Iowa.
