Connecting People

Infographic showing the 109 self-identified education partnerships and 56 staff interested in future education partnershipsDuring our inaugural year (2016-2017), PPE laid the foundation for achieving our mission by establishing ourselves as a hub for UD’s education community and engaging faculty and professionals from 7 colleges and 23 campus groups to learn about their incredible work. We also engaged key partners around the state, including the Department of Education, 7 school districts, 16 educational organizations, and other statewide initiatives.

With our working knowledge of UD’s educational and expert resources, as well as the needs and questions being asked across the state, we’ve positioned ourselves to make key connections to drive effective partnerships for Delaware educators and students. And we’ve already formed successful partnerships around shared goals. Check out the partnerships below, or visit Partnership Spotlights to see all ongoing work.
