Join Nathan Daun-Barnett, assistant professor, Educational Leadership and Policy, Graduate School of Education, University at Buffalo and Jeff Cohen, director of Youth and Education Projects, FSG, for a discussion of the collective impact framework in action. Nate will share his analysis of how the Michigan College Access Network created collaborative relationships that are leading to increased college attendance. He will explore how the collective impact framework articulated by FSG applies to this work. Jeff will provide commentary on Nate’s proposed “friendly amendments” to the model, based on his many years of experience working with education programs.
The webinar is based on The Foundation Review article by Nathan Daun-Barnett, Jessica Wangelin, and Haley Lamm, Models of Social Change: Community Foundations and Agenda Setting. Download the article (PDF) TFR_4.4_Daun-Barnett.
