NISE Network Regional Hub contacts:

The NISE Network community within the United States is organized around seven "regional hubs" based on geographic proximity. Regional hubs facilitate partner interaction in the Network, help museum educators connect with researchers and each other, host regional workshops and meetings, and providing support to institutions in their region. To get more involved with the Network, find your region on the map, and contact your regional hub.
