We build capacity.

We help regions, partnerships, and institutions develop the capacity to work together effectively, assess the results of their work, and support students as they cross systems. We provide expertise in data analysis, strategic planning, collaboration and consensus building, and supporting communities of practice.

Through our applied policy analyses and evaluations, we identify gaps within and between K-12 and postsecondary education—gaps that, if filled, could likely support increased learning and greater student success. We focus on different levels of capacity building at the state, system, institutional, and regional levels, and through the lenses of both policy and practice so that one can inform the other.

Our projects include:

NETWORK AND PARTNERSHIP DEVELOPMENT: We are collaborating with partners from across the California State University System to develop a network of faculty, staff, and administrators who lead cross-campus efforts to focus collaboratively on issues related to student success. This work is funded by the State of California and the Kresge Foundation. We are also partnering with the Center for California Studies on the California Education Policy Fellowship Program, a professional development program for education policy leaders focused on improving collaboration between K-12 and postsecondary and improving cycles of policy development and implementation. This work is supported by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the College Futures Foundation and the Rosalinde and Arthur Gilbert Foundation. In addition, EdInsights is partnering with the Career Ladders Project to support cross-system regional education partnerships; this work is funded by The James Irvine Foundation.
