The Equity Assistance Center for Region B, one of 10 federal desegregation assistance centers, is funded through a grant award under title iv of the civil rights act to New York University, Metro Center. The center provides planning, training and technical assistance services in race, gender and national origin from its sites at new york university and rutgers university. It also supports a resource center, with a reference and lending service to schools in the region. Assistance to school districts may be requested in developing desegregation plans and policies, eliminating biased treatment, eliminating biased materials and instruction, and promoting strategies that lead to equitable educational opportunities for all students regardless of sex, race, or national origin.

Region b includes school districts and educational agencies in new jersey, new york, puerto rico and the virgin islands.


The Resource Center

The resource center maintains a special collection of print and videotapes to promote educational equity (k-12) in all curricular areas, from language arts to science and technology. Materials on equity in curriculum and policy, the integration of gender equity and multicultural education, and on stereotyping and role expectations provide educators with the tools to revise the curriculum, develop staff inservice programs, and promote parent/school parternerships.
The resource center provides reference and lending services to all interested persons, including a long-distance borrowing service via u.P.S.
The resource center has the facilities for reviewing books and previewing videotapes and films at the barracks. Subject bibliographies based on the materials in the collection are available.

It is located at the consortium for educational equity, rutgers university, livingston campus 4090, new brunswick, nj 08903, (908) 445-2071, f (908) 445-0027. The director, marylin a. Hulme, may also be reached by e-mail: hulme@gandalf.Rutgers.Edu.
