The International Institute for Restorative Practices Graduate School (IIRP) is excited about affiliating with ICAISA as an Associate Member. The IIRP Mission aligns closely with ICAISA’s Core Values, especially those of Integrity, Accountability, Inclusivity, and Collaboration. Associate Membership with ICAISA helps to position the IIRP as thought partners in 21st century independent school education, focusing on the development of practices and systems that will support independent school students with the critical personal, civic, and career competencies of authentic relationship and community building. We are looking forward to opportunities to engage directly with K-12 accreditors on topics that are relevant and critical to our work. In ICAISA, we have found a professional network of colleagues who are equally committed to promoting the evolution of young people of all backgrounds into engaged citizens and collaborative leaders.
