Student Voice

Logo for Student Voice initiativePurpose

Our Student Voice Initiative was developed to engage students in the problem-solving process and to give students a sense of empowerment and ownership in their academic outcomes with the goal of improving the learning culture and closing achievement gaps.


Each team is composed of three students and two faculty members.

Length of Institute

Two 2-day sessions
Session 1 is held in the fall
Session 2 is held in the spring


The Winthrop Rockefeller Institute, Morrilton


We have been able to fund this program partially, but it will require additional financial commitment on the part of the school or district. There is a $2,500 institute fee to help defray costs of materials and lodging.
