The Buck Institute for Education prepares students for success in college, career, and life by helping teachers, schools, and districts adopt project-based learning. The institute will create tools and resources to assess and develop the leadership knowledge, leadership skills, and leadership practices required to create deeper learning schools. This work aligns with the Education Program’s goal to test theories of diffusion that might bring deeper learning to scale.
