Fostering a culture of innovation.

Promoting new ideas.

Rethinking ways to address current barriers.

These are all ways that the Compact is working with deans, assistant deans, faculty, district and school leaders, professional association representatives, national partners, state leaders, regional personnel, and others, to examine ideas around inclusive pedagogy and the development and implementation of innovative models of preparation.

We believe that when we scale effective and meaningful work, we are able to serve more educators—teachers, administrators, and related services personnel—which ultimately leads to greater reach and impact for all Ohio students.
