Who We Are


CUSP was formed by UNR College of Education and WCSD leaders in 2014 as a means of cataloging current community, university, and school district partnerships, measuring and celebrating their collective impact, and building new ones--all in support of a shared realization of the Nevada Academic Content Standards.

CUSP is committed to strengthening how the educational institutions work together across multiple disciplines.

CUSP utilizes a collective impact approach – the theory that change can happen more systematically and effectively when partners identify a common problem and work together with a shared purpose.
