PURPOSE: The Committee serves as an overarching body to guide strategic efforts at the station to strengthen our education services and community outreach efforts.

CHARGE: The Committee, in coordination with our Community and Educational Services team, will provide guidance as we work to strengthen our education and community outreach efforts. Our strategic areas of focus include promoting early childhood education (school readiness, healthy bodies, and resilience); producing and distributing STEM resources for K12 students and teachers; and finding ways to better serve learning families in our distributed rural coverage area. The Committee will also provide insights as we plan the annual schedule of events (i.e. A Taste of Innovation, Eventapalooza) and, participate in one or more event committees. The Committee will offer information about their communities’ values, unique features and history, annual community events, and what may motivate their community to support WPSU.
