Our office: The Indiana University Office of School Partnerships (OSP) supports the P-12 education eco-system in the State of Indiana by fostering collaboration between the IU campuses, Hoosier educators and policy-makers. The office seeks build meaningful, sustainable and mutually beneficial partnerships that advance P-12 student success by leveraging resources and the collective expertise of everyone involved. Indiana University is committed to creating educational pathways into highly skilled jobs, particularly for low-income, first-generation, and minority students.

Students may remain in the position as long as they are enrolled in classes at an IU campus, including summer if the student takes at least 3 credit hours and meets eligibility requirements (work study, minimum GPA).
Students will be assigned tasks through a common project management software system, attend meetings with faculty/staff across the IU campuses via Zoom, and will be responsible for data entry into Collaboratory.
