The Council on Innovation comprises about 20 members -- experts and visionaries in entrepreneurship, education, business, and community leadership. Called together as a league of advisors, the Council provides insights and inspiration to Mount Vernon Presbyterian School and the Mount Vernon Institute for Innovation. The Council serves as a major spoke of Mount Vernon’s efforts to lead in practitioner research and design for K-12 education. As a school of inquiry, innovation, and impact, Mount Vernon believes inviting such perspective and partnership enhances the School’s capacity to develop learners who engage real-life challenges and contribute as strong citizen leaders in a complex and rapidly changing world. The Council, inaugurated in 2013, focuses annually on a specific topic or theme. This year’s theme is Disruptive Curiosity.
