Partnership in Teaching-Grants and Speakers

The Partnership in Teaching Program brings Ithaca College faculty and staff into area public schools for presentations, projects and collaborations designed to enrich the curriculum and have a positive impact on learning. This program, endowed by the Tompkins Trust Company, has been in existence for over a decade.

For area school teachers, the Partnership in Teaching Program offers them the opportunity to supplement curricular initiatives with presentations and projects that can capture student interest, introduce new concepts or reinforce units of study in ways that extend and enrich learning. Ithaca College faculty and staff see the Partnership as a way to stay connected to area schools and to connect with a generation of students who will soon become college students. It is also a way to give back to the community while at the same time improving and strengthening the kindergarten to college continuum.

Presentations are featured in the Partnership in Teaching Booklet which can be accessed online. While faculty and staff volunteer their time to this program, all reasonable costs necessary to support a presentation are covered. The program is flexible as well. If you have an idea for a Partnership presentation and it is not featured in the Booklet, please be in touch with our staff and we will assist you in finding the appropriate contact person here on campus.

Clynes Collaboration Grants

The Partnership in Teaching program also administers Clynes Collaboration Grants, a grant program designed to facilitate collaboration between College faculty and area teachers on projects that have the potential for sustainability and/or the potential to affect large numbers of students and have a positive impact on the curriculum. For additional information on this program, please see the Clynes Grant Fact Sheet and the grant application.
