WEEAC Services Update - COVID-19

In light of the growing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic we wanted to share developments in the services offered by the Western Educational Equity Assistance Center. The WEEAC office located on the campus of MSU Denver is closed, but all staff are available and working remotely. We understand the difficult circumstances for all and wish you the best in managing the situation in your community.

Although we have been forced to cancel upcoming events and will postpone all travel until normal business resumes, we are available for technical assistance and consultation. We also encourage you to utilize the many resources available on our website. Through technology we are exploring options to continue providing comprehensive training in a virtual format. Please contact us with any requests and we will work on the best solution to support your needs.
