A team at Northwestern University’s Network for Nonprofit and Social Impact is seeking community partners for a research project involving collaborative efforts to improve education. Read the study invitation.
Northwestern University is recruiting 30 communities that are either: 1) using a collective impact structure to improve educational outcomes in communities; or 2) using a different collaborative approach. The goal is to better understand how communities work together on education-related goals.
Participation doesn't cost anything. Each community will receive $1,500 over the course of the three-year study. All participants will receive annual reports that benchmark their efforts alongside other networks. See the study overview for more detail.
Data collection is underway, and new participants will be enrolled through August 2017. If you are interested in learning more about this research or whether your community qualifies for the study, please contact Kate Cooper at firstname.lastname@example.org.
