Human Capital


Following a comprehensive landscape analysis of talent, diversity, equity and inclusiveness across City of Buffalo schools, Cullen Foundation prioritized Human Capital investments that:

  • Support the growth of pipelines and/or certification models to grow the supply of qualified teachers and improve diversity of talent 
  • Support the development of high-quality ELA/ math professional development models to improve teacher proficiency/effectiveness
  • Support the development of existing leaders’ management and instructional leadership skills 


Cullen invests in education focused human capital work through its strategic investing efforts and not through our open responsive grant process.
