The mission of the center is to support educational initiatives and collaborate at all levels – classroom, administrative or agency level. The Center has a rich history of statewide projects with a variety of activities.
We recognize the importance of tailoring the support provided to most effectively addressing individual needs to advance local efforts. We have assisted with professional development, pilot projects, facilitated work sessions, continuous improvement efforts, resource development, research reports and the development of materials.
The Center for the Advancement and Support of Educational Initiatives is an externally funded center of Illinois State University.
