The Partnership, the conerstone and primary commitment of the Miami University Partnership Office, was founded in 2001. Based on rigorously collaborative, mutually beneficial commitments and projects, the Partnership between Talawanda Schools and Miami Universtiy continues to thrive. Thousands of students, faculty members, and community advocates from both sides work together to improve public education, enhance opportunities for college students to serve the wider educational community, and to cultivate new possibilities in our work together. Explore this website for examples of our work together, over the years and today!
The Partnership Committee, made up of members from the Talawanda and Miami communities, meets monthly throughout the school year to monitor activities within the partnership, to discuss new directions, and to provide a forum for concerns. Over the years, the body has negotiated and established bylaws (click here to see the bylaws Bylaws Draft Final.pdf) and works across multiple constituencies to continue the work of the partnership. To see a copy of the proposal guidelines for grants made by the committee to forward the work, please check out the documents posted under Links from the navigation bar.
