Educational Organizations

CRS provides support to public and private secondary schools, colleges, and universities who are experiencing tension or conflicts based on actual or perceived race, color, national origin, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, or disability. Some ways CRS assists educational organizations are:

  • Facilitating programs that help students, parents, teachers, and administrators identify the underlying issues of school conflicts; develop problem-solving and decision-making skills; and increase trust, understanding, and collaboration within the school community
  • Helping faculty, administrators, and students develop mechanisms for preventing and responding to hate or bias-motivated crimes, incidents, and tensions, including the development of action plans and school-based working groups
  • Bringing together administrators, staff, educators, and students to discuss perceived tensions, alleged incidents of bullying, and alleged hate crimes in schools, colleges, universities, and other educational institutions

Below are some recent examples of CRS's work with educational organizations. Additional case summaries may be found within CRS’s Annual Reports, located on the CRS Resource Center webpage.
