Institutes of Higher Education Partners

The Institutes of Higher Education (IHE) Project MAX Partnership was developed to support the ability of future teachers to sustain and expand MAX principles related to standards-aligned instruction for all students, including those with complex instructional needs. Partnerships with higher education teacher preparation programs is a critical bridge in order to influence and expand MAX principles in schools through the preparation of the next generation of general and special educators. This paradigm shift will ensure maximized access for ALL learners. A cutting edge of preservice readiness is provided by accessing and embedding MAX principles, materials, and tools into preservice coursework and field experiences. Teacher candidates exposed to MAX philosophical practices and skills are better positioned in a competitive hiring market.
