We will take a multi-perspective approach to discussing why and how to develop multi-institution K-12 engagement initiatives. We will look at two innovative programs, one which provides a framework for multiple universities to provide direct engagement with public school students and one which is a STEM exposure program for public school students in multiple cities. We will also look at how the case for such initiatives can be made to both internal audiences (for buy-in for resources and prioritization) and external audiences (to encourage collaboration and prove impact). Practitioners will speak to how such initiatives were first conceived, what purposes they are driving towards, and how they measure success. An economist will frame this work within a broader lens of the value proposition of universities in communities. Panel members will include Lee Huang, Senior Vice President and Principal at Econsult Solutions, Inc.; Hillary Aisenstein Kane, Director of the Philadelphia Higher Education Network for Neighborhood Development (PHENND); Eli Kennedy, CEO of the Summer Math and Science Honors Academy (SMASH); JeNell LaRue, Assistant Director of GEAR UP at the School District of Philadelphia; and Brittany Lewis, GEAR UP Coordinator for Temple University.
