The purpose of this paper is to share the results of multiphase initiatives funded by four separate grants. The projects were designed to improve and enhance collaborative teaching at the secondary level. Each project provided opportunities for increased collaboration between special education faculty, secondary education faculty, and instructional leaders (IHE Faculty). Elements of the initiative included program planning, the inclusion professor model, secondary teacher professional development within local school districts with a roundtable discussion among IHE faculty, and technology tools for collaboration in secondary settings. Findings support the need for more collaborative efforts among IHE faculty and K-12 institutions. (Contains 1 table and 1 figure.)
