Initiatives and Engagements

Designed and hosted in collaboration with partner institutions , our initiatives seek depth in engagement and impact for participants.



Engagement-driven Impact

The Education Collaborative uses multiple initiatives and engagements to achieve our transformational goals by highlighting innovation and facilitating sharing and learning among educators, administrators, and industry all year round.

We spark discussion and interest to drive strategic actions in higher education teaching, learning, and administration. We utilize both virtual and in-person programming to ensure easy accessibility, broader reach, and deeper impact.

Our initiatives target long-term impact in five transformational goal areas:

  1. Ethics and leadership development in students
  2. Training students with relevant career readiness
  3. Enabling an active entrepreneurship ecosystem
  4. Building systems for accountability and sustainability
  5. Developing inclusive and diverse higher education institutions (HEIs)
