The programs of the Rutgers' Center for Family Involvement in Schools create a partnership for learning between families and schools that promotes and enhances academic success. They also create a powerful school climate that demonstrates respect, trust, and belonging. In addition to teacher-training programs, the center conducts summer leadership institutes to train classroom teachers to become certified teacher/trainers and provides resources for educators and parents in family involvement and equity in math, science, technology, and the arts. The center's goals are to create and disseminate innovative, interdisciplinary equity-focused programs that will increase opportunities for all children to learn with parents at school and at home; to stimulate parents to partner with teachers in children's learning; and to strengthen family-school community partnerships.
