The International and Multicultural Education (IME) department  is committed to understanding inequalities based on race, class, gender, and nationality as a way of promoting educational scholarship and research based on principles of equity and social justice. The programs are dedicated to understanding formal and informal education within social, cultural, and linguistic contexts in both the United States and abroad.

While the programs address the realities of urban schooling in the United States, we maintain a global focus by carefully examining the impact of globalization and immigration on education and human rights worldwide.
