To ensure that future gatherings of ICUE are ecologically sustainable, we have made the decision to reduce our carbon footprint through several initiatives.  We've not only eliminated the paper programs but as of ICUE 2024 we will no longer provide conference materials (bags, pads, and other fillers). We will, however, provide lanyards for name cards.



We are excited to share our Save-the-Date for our upcoming conference.  On February 1, 2024 we will unveil the following:

- Conference Location

- Conference / Hotel Registration

- Proposal Submission System

Conference Update 7/15/20

Over the course of this year we have been challenged to reevaluate our purpose and impact. As our nation grapples with COVID-19 and endemic racism, it is important for us to stay vigilant in providing opportunities to intellectually discuss the breadth and depth of the issues our communities face. As a conference, we are designed to provide a space where the voices of activist, educators, leaders, scholars, and students are validated and supported. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic the 2020 International Conference on Urban Education has been postponed until 2021.


All proposals that were uploaded will be reviewed for the ICUE 2021. All further details, including proposal deadlines, acceptance/denial notifications, proposal retraction information, and conference dates, will be posted on the website in the near future.


It is important that we take care of our physical, spiritual, and emotional health as we journey through these uncertain times. Please support your local organizations and rallies to combat racism and visit your state, prefect, or regional public health website, local clinics, personal physician, and the CDC and WHO websites for valid information on COVID-19.

Stay safe and strong,
Dr. Stephen D. Hancock
Conference Director
