The Evansville Education Roundtable was formed in 2004 to enhance communication and foster collaboration among government officials, educators, members of local business, and the community to ensure that every person in Vanderburgh County has an opportunity to receive world-class education. Through the work of the full Roundtable, sub-committees, and individual members serving as education advocates, the Evansville Education Roundtable works to:
- Increase the post-secondary education attainment rate
- Increase adult educational attainment
- Close the achievement gap
- Enhance early childhood education
- Create a network of trained mentors for the City’s youth
- Promote and enhance citizenship
- Partner with federal, state and local governmental and educational entities to address educational issues facing Vanderburgh County schools
- Illustrate how quality educational opportunities can enhance economic development efforts
- Speak as a unified voice in communicating the community’s concerns about education to government officials in Indianapolis and Washington, D.C.
The Evansville Education Roundtable meets three to four times a year, with meetings generally held at 3:00 p.m. in the Third Floor Conference Room at The Victory Theatre, 600 Main Street.
