The Greater Summit County Learning Center offers partnership opportunities to the
many universities and state and private colleges located in the Greater Summit County
Area. The interaction and collaboration between students offers experiences for
field based work where students can have hands on experience in an innovative child-centered
setting. We will continue to reach out to higher education to work with them in
developing experiences for current and future educators at our site.
We are proud
of the work that is occurring between Kent State University, The University of Akron,
and Summit College (a two year program within the University of Akron). We are anxious
to place students in our program to fulfill clinical and field hours. The interaction
between and among the universities professional staff, the students, and our staff
will provide on-going professional development opportunities throughout the years
and aid toward curriculum implementation and improvements that support evidence
based research practices.
