Two universities are teaming up this summer to offer an interdisciplinary, executive-training program for senior teams of state and district education leaders.

Harvard University, in Cambridge, Mass., and the University of Virginia, in Charlottesville, were each awarded $5 million for up to five years from the Wallace Foundation, of New York City, for the initiative.
