Are you interested in joining the Learning Network Cohort (LNC)? Click HERE to register.


The Learning Network Cohort is an intentional learning community that provides shared learning and networking opportunities for partners related to a common topic of interest or shared goals. The Center offers opportunities for cohort members to participate in shared online professional learning and networking experiences that include online professional learning events, resources, and technical assistance.





Online Profesional Learning

Virtual events include a needs sensing orientation, a virtual roundtable discussion with a subject matter expert, an equity tool showcase, and a webinar.




Members gain access to a password-protected document sharing site that is populated with resources and research each month.



Technical Assistance

Members who are local or state education agencies have access to a Technical Assistance specialist who lives and works in your region and may request a professional learning experience for their district related to the topics of the LNC.



Currently, the Center offers a series of virtual learning events focused on two topic areas:

  • Culturally Responsive/Asset-based and Sustaining Practices (CRSP): This customized series provides tools and supports to assist with advancing educators’ awareness, knowledge, and understanding of evidence-based culturally responsive and sustaining leadership practices.
  • Safe and Inclusive Schools (SIS): This customized series provides educators targeted supports to redress incidents of harassment based on race, sex, national origin, and/or religion, as well as guidance on how to create safe and inclusive learning cultures and climates.
