WEEAC Horizontal LogoWelcome to the Western Educational Equity Assistance Center (WEEAC) at Metropolitan State University of Denver. We assist states, school districts, public schools (including charter and magnet schools), and Tribal Education Departments to plan and implement practices and policies that promote equity and high quality education for all students. 

We are one of four regional Equity Assistance Centers funded by the United States Department of Education under the Title IV of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. All centers provide training and technical assistance on educational issues related to race, sex, national origin, and religion. In addition, WEEAC has an emphasis on the prevention of bullying and harassment in schools.

At the request of education agencies, we partner with them to find solutions to a variety of equity problems. Our work is directed to closing achievement gaps, promoting safe schools, and helping all students reach high standards. Our services are without charge or very low cost to requesting education agencies within Region IV.

Our highly qualified staff is ready to assist you. Please contact us if you have any requests or questions about our services. Requests may originate from teachers, principals, parents/guardians, community leaders, and state and district administrators.
