College Race Equity Advocacy Advisory Council (CREAAC)
Advocating for race equity in Minnesota’s higher-ed systems
At Minnesota Education Equity Partnership, we’re building cross-cultural, multi-racial collaborations designed to undo and transform the historical systems and structures of racism in ourselves, our institutions, and our communities.
Building collaborations and partnerships for meaningful change
Recently, we’ve been convening numerous voices and gathering insights in our College Race Equity Advocacy Advisory Council (CREAAC), a state-wide, multi-racial advocacy group working to direct and advocate for new policies to advance race equity in Minnesota’s higher education systems.
Thanks to the hard work and dedication of MnEEP’s CREAAC Chairs and Members and so many higher-ed partners and leaders during the 2021 legislative session, the Minnesota State Legislature voted to ensure the State Grant will cover costs of developmental education courses without counting towards a student’s grant term credit limits.
