A source of inspiration and instruction for institutions and individuals considering crossing the invisible “line” separating higher education from K-12. Describes a collaboration of four universities (Temple, Texas at El Paso, CSU-Northridge, and Southern Colorado) to create a coherent K-16 experience for both teachers and learners by giving faculty participation in schools a place in the faculty reward system. Offers lessons learned, and suggests strategies for others undertaking to honor such faculty work. Includes institutional case studies, plus essays from a dozen participating faculty and administrators.
