Penn Excellence & Equity Consortia

All of our Consortia are driven by a mission to positively transform the lives of each and every one of our students by preparing them for success in post-secondary education and in life – especially our diverse children and youth who have traditionally struggled academically in our systems, or who might likely be the first in their family to attend and graduate from college.

Our member districts are committed to the success of every student in each of our schools, and are committed to equity by recognizing and eliminating institutional barriers to allow all students’ increasing inclusion in and opportunities to access the best of what our districts have to offer. We seek to assure that students’ identities will not predict or predetermine their success in school and life. We collectively and continuously seek the real possibility of equality of educational outcomes for each student and between our diverse subgroups of students.

We are partners and a strong collective voice who can help gather the resources, thought and energy needed to create and sustain meaningful educational change to the benefit all of the children we serve locally, regionally and state-wide. The Consortia serves as a valuable resource where the best of what we know of research and informed practice percolate- ideas and strategies that help district leaders effectively address their critical local challenges of securing and sustaining high level student achievement for all and educational equity. We are committed to strengthen the capacities of our districts to advance new district and school-level practices and programs that positively impact success of their diverse learners.


Delaware Valley Consortium for Excellence & Equity (DVCEE)

What would happen if networks of school districts came together to rethink equity and education? Check out this short video, by LionChaser Films, on the Penn GSE Consortia for Excellence and Equity to find out. Get in touch with us to find out how your school district can join the movement!

The Delaware Valley Consortium for Excellence & Equity (formerly the Delaware Valley Minority Student Achievement Consortium or DVMSAC) is a collaborative association of 36 school districts located throughout Pennsylvania, southern New Jersey and northern Delaware, as well as several intermediate units, and the PA State Education Association.

DVCEE members are committed to working together to enhance the achievement and well-being of all of their students, and most specifically, to increasing the academic performance, engagement, and future success of their students of color, first-generation college attendees, students of economic disadvantage, and other traditionally marginalized student groups.

The Long Island Consortium for Excellence & Equity is a new and evolving collaborative network of regional school districts.  LICEE bases its work on the efforts of the Delaware Valley Minority Student Achievement Consortium, led by the Penn Center for Educational Leadership since 2004.
