The Family, School, and Community Engagement in Education (FSCE) initiative at the Center for Universal Education (CUE) focuses on building strong partnerships that promote student learning and development and support schools and communities to thrive. Together with over 60 organizations and institutions on six continents, the FSCE initiative conducts collaborative research and develops open-access tools that educators, decision makers, and community organizations can use to understand each other’s beliefs and foster relational trust. Through CUE’s Global Family Engagement in Education Network, an active community dedicated to advancing FSCE practices around the world, the network shares innovative strategies and approaches to center families and students in education systems transformation.

On June 4, join us for a day of conversations on how to deepen family, school, and community partnerships to promote greater equity, inclusion, and relevance in education around the world. Learn about new evidence from the new “Six Global Lessons on How Family, School, and Community Engagement Can Transform Educationreport and hear directly from the teams that led the research in communities across six continents. Participate in a series of dynamic conversations and workshops that explore how to use evidence to develop greater relational trust and partnerships between families, students, and schools.
