Strong communities are built on a foundation of education. The IU School of Education is actively engaged in creating experiences that bring our students and faculty into communities where they can be of service and make a difference through practice and research.

As a leader in education at the local, state, national, and international levels, we provide expertise and resources so we can build stronger communities. Together we can work on issues that matter and make a difference. We invite you to explore our collaboration and outreach activities and get involved.
