Elizabeth Soslau Receives Award for Need in Deed Partnership
Elizabeth Soslau, associate professor in the School of Education, has received the Campus Compact Mid-Atlantic P20 Partnership Award, which recognizes a leading partnership between preK-12, higher education and the community. Partnerships recognized through this award address issues related to college, career and civic readiness through student engagement and service-learning, thereby increasing both student success and community development. Soslau received this award in honor of her partnership with Need in Deed, a Philadelphia-based education nonprofit, and Warner Elementary School in Wilmington, Delaware. This partnership builds capacity for culturally responsive pedagogy at Warner Elementary through critical service learning, an approach that connects the classroom with the community and helps students see themselves as agents of change.
