Business/Education Partnership Forum

A Clearinghouse for Partnership News and Resources

Anyone who has spent time searching for resources on building effective education partnerships can tell you that such resources are few and far between. Realizing the need for a single source of such materials, DeHavilland Associates launched the Business/Education Partnership Forum in 2006 as a free service to anyone interested in building partnerships, and maintains the site to this day.

This pro bono initiative offers links to news stories and points visitors to resources and organizations engaged in partnerships or partnership issues at the local, state, or national levels. The site also offers a free monthly emailed newsletter.

About the Forum
The Business/Education Partnership Forum came about after realizing that there was virtually no infrastructure in the partnership field. The last national resource for partnerships, the National Association for Partners in Education (NAPE), closed in 2002; after that, there was no real source of information on partnerships for practitioners.

The Forum was launched in 2006 as a free resource for new and experienced practitioners alike. We continue to post news and links to new research, surveys and more as a service to the industry.
