Welcome to the University-School Partnerships' web site...
Our office supports the overall educational mission and goals of the School of Education and the University through a wide range of activities and programs that create opportunities for professional growth and development of preservice and inservice teachers.
Our office offers opportunities for the professional growth of teachers by: organizing mentoring and induction programs; sponsoring conferences, forums, grant programs, and promoting teacher leadership and professional collaboration through networks. USP draws on the expertise and experience of outstanding regional teachers to inform its programs, school reform initiatives and educational policy.
This website provides information about some of the USP programs and offers a link to some of the resources available to public school personnel. For more information, call 910.521.6779 or email me, Dr. Kayonna Pitchford, Director University-School Partnerships
