Maryland Equity Project (MEP)

Welcome to the Maryland Equity Project!

Our Mission

The mission of the Maryland Equity Project (MEP) is to improve public education through research that supports an informed public policy debate about the quality and distribution of educational opportunities in Maryland and nationally. Through independent research, policy and data briefs, and seminars, MEP engages diverse communities around three areas of research: (1) the teacher workforce; (2) educational equity and access; and (3) The Blueprint for Maryland's Future, which is a comprehensive, multibillion-dollar reform that aims to transform our state's education system. MEP also provides University of Maryland undergraduate and graduate students with an opportunity to conduct policy-relevant investigations, learn how to make research more accessible and engage directly with stakeholders.

Stay tuned for upcoming events!
