Steering Committee

Learn more about our leadership.

Nashville PEER is guided by a Steering Committee comprised of leaders from Metro Nashville Public Schools and Vanderbilt University’s Peabody College of Education and Human Development. The Steering Committee provides high-level direction and oversight for the partnership, including adopting and monitoring the execution of a research agenda, providing strategic direction and support for research dissemination and use, and overseeing the partnership’s operations. The vision set by the Steering Committee is carried out collaboratively by partnership staff and cross-institutional working groups.
