What is Innovation and Inquiry for Student Learning?
This consortium-based project, funded by Lumina Foundation for Education, focuses on collaborations among multiple community and technical colleges to investigate and identify how institutions can become more learning-centered. This website serves to describe this project and provide links to related sites of interest.
