Middle school teachers collaborate with an education researcher on how to improve practice in the middle grades with a focus on equity, developmental relationships, and social-emotional learning for middle school students.

The To&Through Project enthusiastically welcomes anyone — from practitioners, researchers, education leaders, to students or families — to reach out about our work. Whether you're interested in discussing the applications of our research to practice or applying to be a research analyst or intern, we hope to hear from you.


Be Our Collaborator

We love to meet professionals in the field of education who share our mission and work with education data or work to improve practice in the middle grades and beyond. Opportunities are available to be a guest presenter at our monthly Data Collaboratives, collaborators in research-based professional development, and more. Reach out to To&Through Project Director Alex Seeskin and/or Associate Director of Engagement Dominique McKoy if you are interested in collaborating with us.


Apply for a Research Internship or Position

The To&Through Project conducts research in partnership with the UChicago Consortium on School Research that aims to provide educators and education stakeholders with insights into levers to influence student attainment metrics. Our research is meant to be a starting place for difficult questions about the experiences of students and what we can do differently to better meet their needs.

To inquire about upcoming application windows for research internships or positions, reach out to To&Through Project Associate Director for Data Research Alex Usher.


Leverage Our Data Tools

The To&Through Project provides data on the milestones that research shows matter most for students’ high school and college success in one virtual hub we call the Online Tool. If you are interested in learning more about how to leverage our data tools like the Milestones Tool, the Postsecondary Attainment Index (PAI) Calculator Tool, or the College Pathways Tool, reach out to Associate Director of Engagement Dominique McKoy.


Improve Practice in the Middle Grades

The To&Through Middle Grades Network is a group of schools dedicated to creating more equitable and supportive educational environments where middle grades students can thrive. The network seeks to build the capacity of practitioners to understand the developmental, social-emotional, and non-academic factors critical for student success and to make changes in practice that improve middle grades indicators for success in high school and beyond. To learn more about opportunities to get involved, reach out to To&Through Project Associate Director of the Middle Grades Network Ashley Leonard.
