Abstract

Within Minnesota, the University of Minnesota possesses the unique capacity to generate ongoing and systemic research that will improve the lives of all Minnesotans. This capacity is particularly critical in preK-12 education, where separating what is believed from what is known through research is critical for the success of education. The University has a history of extensive engagement with preK-12 schools around research, 3 teaching, and outreach that touches all parts of the University and includes programs that represent the best in partnerships—enduring, collaborative, complementary, and focused on issues of importance to the University and Minnesota. Nevertheless, successes have been limited by the way the engagements have been structured, largely as individual initiatives rather than as ordered and integrated activities. The task force recommendations frame and organize efforts, increasing their coherence and coordination without limiting faculty efforts to pursue personal research interests.

Description

Documents (final report and executive summary) providing recommendations on how to foster more lasting and meaningful relationships with preK-12 schools.
