American University's School of Education (SOE) is committed to equity and excellence in education. The 2020 Summer Institute on Education Equity and Justice (SIEEJ) Virtual Conference, held June 22-24, showcased nine webinars, and attracted nearly 10,000 registrants.

The institute's workshops, conducted by experts in the field, focus on educational, legal, and health implications for young people of color. Sessions are designed to change both mindsets and practices (i.e. alternatives to suspension/punishment; strategies to instill a culture of engagement). The overall goal of SIEEJ is to build a community of practice singularly focused on the strengths, challenges, and opportunities in the lives of young people of color and the communities in which they live.
