Rhode Island College and the Central Falls School District are
partners in Achieving Together: The Central Falls/Rhode Island College Innovation Lab (the Innovation Lab). This unique, first-in-the-nation collaboration has the potential to provide a PK-12 and post-secondary urban education model that offers a new paradigm for state and national replication.
The Innovation Lab presents a unique opportunity -- a catalyst for creating a vibrant shared community where new models of learning, teaching and service are developed, piloted and researched. This mutually beneficial partnership will meet the diverse needs of the residents of Central Falls; advance teaching, learning and research at Rhode Island College; and serve as an innovation laboratory for developing and piloting sustainable and replicable programs in urban education, community development and healthy communities.
