• Building Relationships Leads to Widespread Support

  • Leaders from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas College of Education and their school/district partners discuss how careful cultivation of relationships leads to strong support for students, teachers, and preparation programs. Assistant Professor Joseph Morgan says their programs look at schools’ needs and reach out to whatever experts can help address those needs, resulting in collaboration across different university departments and beyond. Dean Kim Metcalf describes the value of extending these relationships to the policy community by becoming an informative resource to state lawmakers as well as locally.
