In 2018, the University of Michigan’s Center for Educational Outreach, the School of Education, and the Edward Ginsberg Center formed a partnership to strengthen and streamline their K-12 services and opportunities for the U-M community as well as provide clearer direction and guidance to K-12 schools and educational partners in Michigan. Later named “RECAP” to highlight the guiding principles for K-12 partnerships, these Centers’ collaboration shows the commitment to working with our U-M colleagues, K-12 schools and students to advance student learning and partnerships through the RECAP principles.
