Indiana Management Performance Hub (formerly Indiana Network of Knowledge)

Collaboration Facilitator

Jim Lindsay

Collaboration Objective

REL Midwest partners with the Indiana Management Performance Hub to leverage Indiana’s statewide longitudinal data system, known as the Education and Workforce Development data system or EWD. The EWD is a collaborative initiative between the Indiana Department of Education, Commission for Higher Education, Department of Workforce Development, and Family and Social Services Administration. Education and workforce data elements are linked across the partner agencies at the record level, joining key education and workforce descriptors for exploration.

The goal of this collaboration is to explore key research questions to address specific policy initiatives. This enhanced understanding enables decisionmakers to make better informed choices to positively affect students, teachers, workers, and employers.
