As a member of the national Strive Together Network, ImpactTulsa seeks to improve education for every child in the Tulsa region. Our partnership includes leaders from education, business, philanthropic, nonprofit, civic and faith communities who all believe education is the key to the prosperity of our community.
The Tulsa region is home to nearly 30% of Oklahoma’s population. Throughout our community, teachers, nonprofits, parents and volunteers work hard to improve educational outcomes for our students. We have made progress over the years, but while Tulsa is home to some of the best education program models and innovative ideas in the country, we have not yet achieved the kind of success that is necessary to support the future of our regional economy.
Education is a community responsibility, and we are ALL accountable. By finding new ways of working together by using relevant data as a flashlight that guides both resources and investments, ImpactTulsa is committed to ensuring the community’s collective efforts are aligned toward boosting student success. When our region agrees on common education outcomes we no longer are a collection of good programs, but instead we become a community with a first class education system that guarantees each student receives a high-quality education.
Coming together, defining goals, taking action together and sharing accountability…We call this collective impact.
