Collaborative Leadership in Action is about creating school-university-community partnerships and the leaders who build and sustain them. It defines and describes different types of collaborative partnerships and discusses how to develop, maintain, and evaluate relationships that enrich the PreK–16 learning environment. Speaking from the leadership perspectives of both PreK–12 and higher education, real-life examples illustrate theories and practices of successful leaders partnering across organizations. The final chapter provides a set of considerations and guidelines for effective collaborative leadership.

Contributors: David M. Byrd, Jeffrey Glanz, David Hoppey, D. John McIntyre, Ted Price, Lee Teitel, Jerry Willis, Diane Yendol-Hoppey

“The need for partnerships between K–12 and higher education is greater than ever before. This book shows how these partnerships can be designed to benefit all students.”
—Gov. Bob Wise, president, Alliance for Excellent Education

“I find much wisdom, based on lots of experience, in this book. . . . Educators are lucky to have this resource available.”
—From the Foreword by David C. Berliner, Regents’ Professor Emeritus, Arizona State University

“Wepner, Hopkins, and their colleagues show us how to create a seamless K–12 system that uses the power of collaboration to improve teaching and student achievement. Effective teaching is a team sport. Our schools need good teachers and leaders, but they don’t become great places to learn until those educators join forces to develop a learning culture that is more powerful than even the best of them can create on their own. This book shows the way.”
Tom Carroll, President, National Commission on Teaching and America’s Future
