What we do

Foster partnerships between K-12 educators and IU faculty

The Office of School Partnerships connects IU faculty, staff, and college students with K-12 educators across the state to meet specific community needs that support and advance K-12 education in Indiana. 

Working with Indiana's diverse rural, suburban, and urban communities requires special attention to local history, culture, and sensibilities. Our office ensures that IU faculty and local communities connect to co-create improvements to education that meet the urgent and emerging needs of each community, and can be shared throughout the educational ecosystem.
