Established in 2005, at the Ontario Institute of Studies in Education at the University of Toronto, CUS carries out academic and contracted research, offers educational programs and professional development opportunities, and supports students, teachers, schools, parents and district boards in the development of school reform initiatives that have a clear focus on equity for all students.
