Best Practices
Experiential Learning
The Partnership Collaborative facilitates the development, integration and growth of partnerships across the three divisions. The mission of the collaborative is to create partnerships with universities and community organizations to provide real world learning and leadership opportunities for students, connect our students to innovative programs & research opportunities, and enhance external partnerships with corporate and community organizations/associations to create opportunities for innovative and experiential learning and leadership.

Partnerships from a variety of industries, non-profits and the arts enrich the curricular program by providing real-world and experiential learning opportunities for girls at all levels. The partnership collaborative connects faculty to external partners by consulting with them to design experiences that connect Ellis girls to the local, national and global community.
