Scope and Content

This small collection documents the Partners in Education program of the Waterloo Community Schools.  The mission of the program was "to develop partnerships between the community and schools for the purpose of enhancing the academic and social development of students."  This program attempted to foster learning and to expose elementary school children to the possibilities of higher education.  In this program, the University of Northern Iowa was a partner with Black Hawk Elementary School.  The university maintained this relationship from 1987 through 2005.
