A Promise to Act: Educational Equity and Excellence for All of Our Children

In 2011, Central Lakes College (CLC) brought together community leaders in Central Minnesota, the communities of Onamia, Isle, and the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe, including Nay Ah Shing School and
Wewinabi Early Childhood Program and began to mobilize around education equity in the region. After organizing community members, Central Lakes College (CLC) applied for and received funding and consulting support from the Minnesota Minority Education Partnership (MMEP) in order to develop a collective action project that addresses opportunity gaps in education impacting students of color,
American Indian, and White students in the region. The project has also received funding from: CLC, MMEP, the Otto Bremer Foundation, the Blandin Foundation, and the Initiative Foundation.
