The SCRA Education Connection originated in the Community Connection, a clearinghouse founded in 1982 by Maurice Elias and Jim Dalton for exchanging community psychology course syllabi. In 1987, the renamed Education Connection became a department in The Community Psychologist, where it still appears. Scot Evans, Jim Dalton, and the SCRA Council of Education Programs collaborated in making the Education Connection an online resource in 2007.
