Education

The Lincy Institute believes education is one of the most important investments a community can make. Not only does it provide our children and youth with access to knowledge, skills, and opportunity; education serves as a key driver for Southern Nevada’s economy and quality of life.

Our primary aim is to leverage Southern Nevada’s education assets and resources in ways that support high quality educational opportunities from cradle-to-college and career. This includes bridging education research to policy and practice in the following areas:

  • Targeted K-20 investments;
  • English Language Learners;
  • Student Access and Success; and
  • Community Colleges and Workforce Alignment.

By working in direct collaboration with non-profit and research organizations, community-based organizations, student and parent groups, college and university faculty, and Clark County School District officials and staff, The Lincy Institute seeks to improve Southern Nevada’s educational opportunities, access, outcomes and federal resources.
