MEP is governed by the MEP Directors and Advisory Council.
The Madison Education Partnership Advisory Council is tasked with:
(1) advising MEP directors and staff on key decisions for the partnership’s growth and development, use and distribution of research products, and ways to sustain the partnership;
(2) providing thoughtful reviews of new lines of work, grant proposals, and research products prior to release;
and (3) sharing information about MEP’s mission and work with others in their networks.
The Advisory Council is composed of three representatives each from MMSD and UW–Madison, plus one outside research practice partnership individual.
