This partnership between Milwaukee Public Schools, Milwaukee Area Technical College, and UW-Milwaukee seeks to support the city of Milwaukee through educational collaboration. One goal is to raise aspirations, readiness and student success. The committee for this goal focuses its efforts on Academic and Career Planning (ACP) to support connectivity among institutions. Subgroups are developing career workshops, supporting ACP initiatives, and improving career readiness skills development. This panel workshop will provide a synopsis of M3 plans, current activities, and potential for replication of effort. The second portion of this workshop will include interactive planning for partnerships with nearby post-secondary institutions.
