The Center for Innovation in Urban Education (CIUE) strives to participate in local and national conversations about urban education. Through our research, program development, and community engagement, grounded in Baltimore, but extending to other urban communities in the United States, our vision is to work collaboratively to enhance the educational experiences and life quality of young people attending urban schools. 


The Center for Innovation in Urban Education  at Loyola University Maryland is a collaborative space for those concerned with the educational experiences of students, families and educators in urban schools. As a result, it is our intention to have a positive impact on education in urban communities through collaborative research, innovative program development, and community engagement


The Center for Innovation in Urban Education is a collaborative initiative involving Loyola University Maryland faculty members and graduate students, as well as community partners. 

Dr. Stephanie Flores-Koulish is working closely with Associate Dean Rob Helfenbein to continue outreach and internal support for our partnerships. Contact CIUE at ciue@loyola.edu
