A showcase
for progress

Bringing it all together

The annual National Convening takes the best ideas from Regional Summits to the next level and is held on the campus of one of the founding higher education partners. There, learners present, advocate, and respond to questions about their prototypes. The objective is to move ideas to action — prototyping, enriching, testing and scaling new approaches designed together with learners.

New directions are essential for the future of all learners. Together we will accelerate change.

The first National Convening is scheduled to be hosted by Grand Valley State University online on August 5, 2021. All interested parties are invited to attend and participate. Sign up to receive more information as the event gets closer.


“We believe in the power of collective impact for transformational change. This collaboration is a vital way to close the equity in education gap by engaging students in a design-centered approach and having the systems and organizations ready to accelerate and implement these new ideas.”
