Innovative educational delivery. Working on behalf of a university client, Lewis-Burke Associates positioned a campus to highlight its national leadership in innovative educational delivery and advance the client’s education policy agenda through a DC-based briefing event.

Lewis-Burke developed a concept for a briefing that showcased the university’s strengths in education innovation and alignment with industry partners, while framing the event to address timely interests of Congress and the Department of Education. The event addressed a secondary objective of highlighting the client’s legislative agenda.

Lewis-Burke identified panelists across industry, national think tanks, the National Academies, and higher education associations. Through outreach efforts of Lewis-Burke, the event drew a large audience of key stakeholders of congressional staff, representatives of federal agencies, industry associations, national thought leaders in education, and other universities.   

The briefing strategically positioned the university as a national leader in pursuing new models of education delivery and partnering with industry to address workforce needs, as well as reinforced the case for the client’s policy agenda.
