CEED Partners

CEED seeks to partner with community agencies and organizations in responding to local/regional needs and addressing critical community-wide issues. In return, we appreciate and value the role community partners play as co-educators of our students. CEED has collaborated with numerous partners since 1997, including schools, government agencies, non-profits, and businesses. The nature of our collaborative work depends on the specific partnership and the problem/need that is being addressed. We count on members of our community to bring important ideas for new projects to us.
