The Rowland Foundation

Annual Conference 2011 at UVM

University of Vermont Every fall The Rowland Foundation offers a one-day conference hosted by the University of Vermont. While the conference is open to all educators, the Foundation specifically encourages eight-member teams from Vermont high schools. Team members typically include the principal or head of school, two or three teachers, an additional administrator or two, two students (strongly advised) and a school board member or superintendent.

A keynote address will be delivered by a nationally or internationally known educator, followed by morning and afternoon session workshops facilitated by our Rowland Fellows.
