The New England Equity Assistance Center (NEEAC), a program of The Education Alliance at Brown University, helps states, districts, and public schools plan and implement policies and practices that promote access to high-quality education for all students. We are one of ten regional equity assistance centers funded by the U.S. Department of Education under Title IV of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to provide training and technical assistance on educational issues related to race, gender, and national origin. At the request of state or district officials, we partner with schools to find solutions to a variety of equity problems. Our work aims to close persistent achievement gaps, to promote safe schools, and to help all students reach high standards.

NEEAC serves the Region I states: Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont.
