First Annual Research Symposium

The Madison Education Partnership held their inaugural annual research symposium on April 26, 2018. The event featured presentations of research on MMSD’s four-year-old kindergarten program and a discussion session with MMSD’s new Director of Early Learning, Culleen Witthuhn. For more information about the symposium and research presented see our events page.


Our mission is to collaboratively engage in supporting high-quality, problem-based research, contribute to policy discussions based on MEP generated research, and regularly disseminate findings to the research community, MMSD, and the public in order to improve the experiences and individual outcomes for all MMSD students.

The MEP partnership engages UW Madison researchers and faculty; MMSD administration, teachers and staff; as well as stakeholders from the broader Madison community to support the development and use of high-quality, relevant, and timely research.
