Welcome to the Center for Education in Small Urban Communities!
Established in the spring of 2007, the Center for Education in Small Urban Communities (CESUC) is a research, service, and outreach unit within the College of Education. It focuses on enhancing teaching and learning, houses a number of professional development and outreach activities, and serves as the liaison for school-university partnerships. The Center’s entire staff work daily to play an active role in fulfilling the University of Illinois’ strategic service directions and to guide the establishment of an ongoing, research-based professional development partnership with area schools.

What does freedom mean to you in today’s world? What does freedom mean in your local community? In the country? In the world? What barriers still exist that prevent people from being free? What can we do as individuals or as a community to break down those barriers? Create a piece of work that shows your ideas of what freedom is, what barriers still remain, and how we can take action to break down those barriers. It can be in the form of an essay, a song or poem, a piece of art, a video, or a multimedia presentation.
