Aim and Scope
School-University Partnerships is committed to advancing research, theory, and practice on collaborative ventures across PK-12 and higher education communities. The journal serves as a forum for the discovery and sharing of knowledge and ideas that shape educator preparation, professional learning, and effective practice in school-university partnerships. Honoring the shared voice of school- and university-based educators is central to the mission of the association; School-University Partnerships seeks manuscripts that represent partnerships among stakeholders and reflect collaborative partnership initiatives.
Manuscripts that address antiracism, equity, and social justice, improved P-12 student outcomes, and policies related to school-university partnerships are highly encouraged. Submissions may investigate school-university partnerships from a variety of methodological approaches and may focus on, but are not limited to, the following:
- Original research in school-university partnerships
- Descriptions of effective educator pedagogy, professional learning opportunities, and/or partnership models and structures
- Empirical evidence of the outcomes of school-university partnerships
- Explorations and evidence of the ability of school-university partnerships to address current educational issues
- Literature reviews or research syntheses related to school-university partnerships
