Abstract: In an era where there is a great deal of attention and space afforded to collaboration, it seems remarkable that few areas in the state or country have committed the necessary resources to develop meaningful partnerships between the P-12 and higher education sectors. This presentation will examine the process of developing a cross-sector collaboration between two sectors whose greatest and yet most challenging link are the students that transition between the two. Born out of a summit that included educational leaders like superintendents, curriculum developers, college presidents and chief academic officers, this unprecedented collaboration met with one very real challenge, a lack of mutual awareness and mis-matched expectations. The P-16 Consortium, however, has become one of this region’s and perhaps NYS’s best model for partnerships between P-12 and higher education and will likely produce unparalleled opportunities for our students and form the foundation for the long-term economic prosperity of Western New York.
