  • Ayana Lewis, Partnerships Manager from the Office of Strategic Partnerships at the School District of Philadelphia will discuss how to partner with the school district and align to school and district priorities.
  • Jamie Shuda, EdD, Director of Outreach and Education at the Institute for Regenerative Medicine, University of Pennsylvania will share the STEM Partnership Toolkit that provides a framework for developing sustainable partnerships and details how to align to the district’s scope and sequence of the science curriculum. This toolkit was created as part of the Philadelphia STEM Ecosystem.

Who should attend?

  • University faculty, staff and students who work with or are interested in working with K-12 schools
  • Non-profits and community programs who are interested in partnerships with colleges, universities and K-12 schools.
  • K-12 teachers, administrators and staff interested in partnerships.

PHENND University Partner Meetings bring together university, nonprofit, and school-based practitioners around common themes. Attendees will have the chance to ask questions to all presenters, network with peers and obtain concrete information on how to connect with the School District. The three main goals for K-16 University Partners meetings are:

  • provide practitioners with “take aways” (e.g. ideas you can adapt for use in your own programs)
  • exposure to new and innovative programs and practices
  • introduction to key School District personnel and strategies
