Teacher helping student

The Minnesota Partnership for School Connectedness (MPSC) is a three-year intercollegiate, interdisciplinary initiative partnering the University of Minnesota with five diverse school districts throughtout the state to increase connectedness and engagement between sixth grade teachers and their students.

University staff collaborate with teaching staff in two ways:

  1. Teacher Fellows
    Teachers from each school participate in a year-long professional development fellowship.
  2. Teacher Facilitators
    Teachers from additional schools develop and assist with trainings, ensure viability, and provide quality feedback for ongoing revisions.
