An essential goal of the Institute of Early Childhood Policy is to build upon BC’s already-extensive set of local, national, and international community partnerships. Community partners will serve multiple roles in the institute, which will work to foster deep collaborations with a robust group of researchers, policymakers, and practitioners across the world:

To support the fellows, the institute will invite partners to present in its seminar series to share their insights from the field. The leadership team will develop internship agreements with partners to provide a broad array of professional opportunities for fellows. 

The institute will collaborate with its partners to further evidence-building through collaborative research and evaluation projects. 

The institute will share its intellectual products to further its efforts to translate research into practice. 

The institute will marshal the expertise of alumni and tap into its relationships within key educational, advocacy, policy, and research organizations.
