New England Equity and Engagement Consortium

New England Equity and Engagement Consortium

The New England Equity and Engagement Consortium (N3EC) is a broad group of faculty and staff from 2- and 4-year public and private higher education institutions working together with community organizations and students to advance anti-racist community-engaged teaching research, and practices across New England.

We collaborate to ensure accountability and that our institutional policies, practices, and structures support ethically-grounded community engagement.

In doing so, we endeavor to strengthen the broader national field of equitable and just civic and community engagement work.

N3EC is comprised of project-based working groups that advance initiatives aligned with our mission. The N3EC Steering Committee meets monthly to support working group efforts, share best practices in anti-racist community-engaged work, and explore ways to build this work for the future.
