These students represent the next generation of public problem solvers and civic leaders. They serve as national examples of the role that higher education can—and does—play in building a better world. The Newman Civic Fellows Awards are made possible through the generous support of the KPMG Foundation.
Ross Marino serves at The Learning Community, a kindergarten through 8th grade public charter school based in Central Falls. The charter school movement began by promising to innovate and research new practices and to share that knowledge with public schools. To fulfill that original promise, The Learning Community has committed itself to collaborating with public schools through the work done by The Teaching Studio. The Teaching Studio is an integrated part of The Learning Community. Practicing teachers and specialists work as consultants and collaborators with public school teachers as well as maintaining their own classrooms. It is currently partnered with the Woonsocket and Smithfield school districts thanks to funding from The Rhode Island Foundation and The Kellogg Foundation.
