Structures for Statewide Communication and Collaboration Sustained, collaborative work—at the institution, system, regional, and state levels, on significant cross-sector issues like college readiness—requires the establishment of supportive statewide networks. Yet the shifting sands of leadership, political priorities, and policy initiatives can wear away once sound collaborative structures. To be effective, statewide structures must have a strong foundation, be somewhat buffered from year to year shifts, and focus on real, high-priority work to be completed by all engaged constituencies. Leaders from Maine and Massachusetts discuss the process of, and lessons learned from, developing such structures in their respective states. Presenters: Rich Pattenaude, Chancellor, University of Maine System Aundrea Kelley, Deputy Commissioner for P--16 Policy and Collaborative Initiatives, Massachusetts Department of Higher Education Facilitator: Sharmila Conger, Senior Policy Analyst, State Higher Education Executive Officers (SHEEO)
