About PPE

Image Picker for Section 0

​PPE is a University-wide initiative supported by the Community Engagement Initiative, the College of Education and Human Development and the College of Arts and Sciences to develop and foster collaborative education based partnerships and improve public education in Delaware.  PPE is identified as a key priority in the Civic Action Plan, UD’s strategic vision for strengthening community engagement.


​The Partnership for Public Education (PPE) is inspired by a vision of excellence and equity in public education for all Delaware children and families.  Our work is grounded in the belief that research, practice, family, and community should all be invested in the systematic improvement of educational opportunities and outcomes. This goal is most effectively achieved through mutual collaboration and cooperation.


​The mission of PPE is to bring together members of the University of Delaware and the broader Delaware educational community—including educators, families, and community leaders —to identify shared needs and opportunities and to facilitate the exchange of knowledge.  PPE will mobilize the University’s research, professional learning, policy and advocacy, and student resources to address critical issues facing schools and foster sustainable partnership work.  To improve the quality and availability of education for all students PPE will prioritize our most underserved communities and seek to improve educational opportunities and outcomes from early childhood through post-secondary access.
