The Center for Educational Partnerships


Welcome to the website for The Center for Educational Partnerships (TCEP) at Old Dominion University. Our mission is to promote the success of educators and students in Virginia and beyond. We do so by engaging in collaborative programs and partnerships within and outside the University. Our work places us in public schools, colleges and universities, and informal learning environments.

As Executive Director, I am proud to lead a dedicated team. TCEP is fortunate to have faculty and staff members with expertise in a diverse range of issues that are critical for education in our region, including STEM, educator professional development, curriculum and assessment design, drop-out prevention, and military child education. TCEP faculty are also accomplished scholars with experience designing and conducting educational research and program evaluation. We hope you enjoy exploring our site. I welcome the opportunity to hear from you.
