Research for Rhode Island Annual Event - July 14, 2015

On July 14th, 2015, The Collaborative hosted its annual Research for Rhode Island event to celebrate and highlight our first two years of research completed by our funded Resource Network members and to launch our third year of research. Scholars, government leaders, and members of the community joined us at the Rhode Island Foundation, as we shared more about the mission and work of The Collaborative.

Opening remarks were delivered by Rhode Island Foundation President Neil Steinberg, Governor Gina M. Raimondo, Senate President M. Teresa Paiva Weed, Representative Kenneth A. Marshall, and Brown University President Christina H. Paxson, who voiced their support for The Collaborative and spoke to the role of The Collaborative in Rhode Island.

This event gave us the opportunity to show our appreciation for the support that The Collaborative has received during the past two years and to recognize the value and importance of the work of our funded scholars, not only to our organization, but to the State of Rhode Island as well.
