Collective Impact

ARISE uses a collective impact model to reach our goals for Alaska Native education. Collective impact is a collaboration where partners set a common agenda, learn about entrenched challenges in systems, and commit to aligning our data collection, resources and programs so our activities target the same goals.

Cook Inlet Tribal Council (CITC) hosted the original stakeholder meeting in 2012 that resulted in this partnership, and has taken on the responsibility for ensuring progress within ARISE. CITC employs the ARISE staff, hosts meetings, serves as the fiscal agent, and otherwise operates as the convening organization of the ARISE partnership.
