Advisory Council

The Wisconsin Character Education Partnership (WCEP) Advisory Committee is responsible for setting the direction and the strategic plan for the Wisconsin Character Education Partnership initiative. This committee oversees the strategic areas that WCEP seeks to promote: Eleven Principles training for state educators and policymakers, Leadership Academy for Principals, Wisconsin Schools of Character (advisory capacity to WSOC committee), and the Wisconsin Call to Character. The committee works to find partnerships with legislators, businesses, and educators to promote the intentional and proactive teaching of character to children in our public and private K-12 schools.
