The SXSW EDU Conference & Festival cultivates and empowers a community of engaged stakeholders to advance teaching and learning. Thanks to the collective wisdom of Concordia University, Faubion School, Kaiser Permanente, Trillium Family Services and the 3 to PhD Communication Committee, our team earned a spot SXSWEDU 2019 for a panel titled “Reimagining School as the Heartbeat of Community”!

We are bursting with pride as we celebrate this tremendous honor!

Thousands of education enthusiasts from across the globe will be in attendance today to listen to our story of how a private university, an urban public-school district , healthcare and mental health providers, and diverse stakeholders joined forces to re-imagine school as the heartbeat of a community.

As we write, our very own Jamie Vandergon (President of Trillium Family Services) is on stage to speak to the value of cross-sector collaboration, community participation, and the importance of preventative mental health in a school-based setting. Yahoo!
