Yet, amidst this diversity, we staunchly uphold the timeless core principles championed by seminal school-university partnership movements, including the likes of the Holmes Group, NNER, Research Practice Partnerships, and NAPDS. Through SUPR SIG, we cultivate a space for introspection, analysis, critique, and, most importantly, collaboration, inviting educators from every corner of the educational spectrum and spanning diverse institutional contexts.
