- Access to tools on how culturally responsive practices can be used to reach educational learning outcomes and standards.
- Engagement in a collegial, safe environment to explore and discuss the difficulties and perceptions of learning and development of culturally responsive teaching.
- Opportunities to collect data, perform research, and promote the scholarship of culturally responsive practices.
- A support for continuing assessment, research and implementation of strategies to improve teaching and learning based research.
- Participation in forums to share research and teaching strategies with colleagues and in the surrounding community.
