The Teaching Scholar Partnerships project was a collaborative initiative that brought together three national organizations of higher education (the American Association of Community Colleges, the Council of Independent Colleges and the Independent Colleges Office), two- and four-year college faculty, K-12 teachers, and undergraduates in science, technology, mathematics and engineering.
AACC represented the ten community colleges participating in the TSP project. CIC and ICO represented the 18 four-year colleges and universities. For more information about AACC, CIC or ICO, please visit the web sites listed above.
Partnerships between K-12 Schools and TSP Colleges and Universities:
During the three-year project, the 28 TSP Colleges partnered with elementary, middle and high schools in 17 states; and, Teaching Scholars tutored and mentored K-12 students in over 300 classrooms. For specific information about the partnerships that developed during the TSP program, please see the TSP Colleges section.
