Frontier Center for Urban Education

About Us

Mission Statement

The Frontier Center for Urban Education supports and initiates promising practices and collaborative efforts in urban education. It serves to foster partnerships between Nazareth College educators and students, urban schools, and community-based organizations. The Frontier Center for Urban Education recognizes excellence and challenges within urban schools and is cognizant that innovative and effective pedagogical practices alone cannot address the impact of social forces. Therefore, the Center promotes teacher and student understanding of the social forces and seeks to address them by building on the strengths and potential of the Rochester community.
