Partners

The Neag School of Education has well-developed partnerships with several education organizations to prepare school leaders with the skill and disposition to promote excellence and equity in student achievement, educator effectiveness, and continuous improvement in all Connecticut schools. UCAPP also has long-standing, trusted relationships with a number of schools and school districts. These collaborations provide our faculty the opportunity to conduct meaningful research on issues of wide-scale importance while making a positive impact locally.
