Building Successful University-K-12 Partnerships

Tuesday 3:00pm-4:15pm Tennessee State University
Round Table Discussion


Chris Vanags, Vanderbilt University
With the recent shift in federal funding priorities, universities have a tremendous opportunity to engage with their local k-12 schools. Though the experience is incredibly rewarding and enriching for both parties, it can also be challenging to navigate an environment that does not resemble academia. In this roundtable, we will discuss strategies for connecting with local schools, focusing on the development and evaluation of implementation strategies and highlighting potential funding opportunities and dissemination plans for building and maintaining an effective partnership.
