Maryland Equity Project (MEP)

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 inquiry: (1) high-quality and diverse teachers and leaders; (2) college, civic and career readiness; and (3) school-community engagement. MEP also provides University of Maryland undergraduate and graduate and students with an opportunity to conduct policy-relevant investigations, learn how to make research more accessible and engage directly with stakeholders.
