Overview of Strivewww.strivetogether.org

  • What it is: Large-scale partnership of more than 300 organizations, institutions, and individual leaders in the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky region

  • What it does: Creates a world-class education system where every child succeeds from birth to career


How it all began

How It All Began

  • Leadership:

    • Nancy Zimpher, then-President of University of Cincinnati“The boundaries of the university are the boundaries of the community”

  • Support:

    • Founding members: Northern Kentucky University, Xavier University, KnowledgeWorks Foundation

    • Early supporters: GCF, United Way, CPS, Proctor & Gamble

  • Evidence:

    • Research completed at the University of Cincinnati led to creation of the Student Roadmap to Success (see next slide), which serves as Strive’s organizing structure

  • Community engagement:

    • Organizations and institutions throughout the region were invited to participate in intervention-specific networks (e.g., tutoring), chaired by Strive leaders

    • Network members work collaboratively to design their own evidence-based strategies and monitor progress toward goals

It took 2-3 years for Strive to move from the idea stage to the action stage; each network has also gone through a 1-3 year development stage
