National Advisory Committee

 

Our work has been informed by hundreds of researchers, practitioners, and policymakers. As an example, the SoLD Alliance National Advisory Committee (SNAC) regularly convenes to provide expert, strategic guidance to the SoLD Alliance as it develops infrastructure for systems change essential to making emerging lessons from the science of learning and development deeply understood, widely held, and actionable among education field leaders and the programs, organizations, and systems they lead. Members of the SNAC include field leaders from across the education and youth-serving landscape, representing research, practice, policy, and advocacy expertise.
