summit III

This is the third in a series of national summits presented by Wayne County Community College District Chancellor Dr. Curtis L. Ivery, and WCCCD’s Institute for Social Progress focusing on enduring issues that disproportionately affect urban America, and related U.S. politics and policy around education.

Following these past efforts that addressed areas of economic inequality, mass incarceration, illiteracy, and significant related issues, this summit extends the scope of that work to consider critical areas of integration, civic engagement, and educational equity in advancing the project of American Democracy.
