The Vermont-Higher Education Collaborate (VT-HEC) is a non-profit organization dedicated to addressing the critical personnel, training and support needs involved with the education of all children and youth. We are working to put into practice effective long-term professional development and school supports that result in the application of new knowledge and skills and improved educational practice.

Through our program Teaching All Secondary Students (TASS), we directly support middle and secondary school teachers and administrators in their effort to transform their school systems. Our Brain, Mind, and Education program offers opportunities for educators and others to learn and apply the principles of research on the brain and learning.
