Our 2021 Project: Imagine Stronger Schools Next Year!
The COVID-19 pandemic has presented many challenges for students, educators, school leaders, and parents. While addressing the urgent issues of today, we must also plan now for the education system we need after COVID. In order to address the devastating effects of this crisis, schools must emerge stronger.
Students and faculty at the Morgridge College of Education are uniquely positioned to rise to this significant challenge. They are forward thinking and committed to driving positive change.
Among other issues, they are partnering with schools on mental health, school and family communication, and use of technology.
You can support our students as they evaluate the impacts of the adaptations made during this crisis, build on new opportunities, and dive deep to address challenges.
With your investment today, we can do more for children tomorrow. Together, we can plan for a brighter future!

In 2019, we partnered with the Brink Literacy Project to increase literacy rates and empower incarcerated women in the US prison system. Through our partnership, and with the support of our community, we were able to enhance their curriculum, develop educator training, and help bring on new instructors. We are proud of our partnership and grateful to everyone who gave, shared, or engaged. To find out more about this project, please visit Brink Literacy Project: Frames Prison Program.
