I often comment that so much research of immediate relevance to educational practitioners is done in collaboration with schools and school districts and communities that our School-University-Community Collaborative Research SIG has universal appeal across all of AERA! Despite our wide appeal, we are one of the smaller but vibrant SIGs in which your voice will be heard and your contributions appreciated.

We have a well-founded understanding of what we mean by school-university-community collaborations. For example, see:

  • Slater’s School/University Collaborative Matrix in Slater, J. J., & Ravid, R. (Eds.). (2010). Collaboration in education. Routledge.
  • Slater, J. J., Ravid, R., & Reardon, R. M. (Eds.). (2016). Building and maintaining collaborative communities: Schools, university, and community organizations. Information Age Publishing. 

We are keen to foster discussion, engender interest, and support research endeavors in these types of situations. 

We are particularly interested in providing a platform for authors working in the SUCCR space--whether or not they are members of our SIG. Please refer to the Information Age Publishing website at for information on the seven edited volumes of the Current Perspectives on School/University/Community Research series that have been published since 2017.  

We most heartily welcome you to join us in “the friendly SIG.”
