Together We Can Make a Difference
Creating strategic partnerships with those who share our aspirations and commitment is an extraordinary opportunity for Antioch University Midwest, our partners and our students. We are grateful for the support from the following institutions in a number of areas.
A long time partnership between the Antioch Writer’s Workshop and Antioch University Midwest has been beneficial for all involved. In 2013, the 28th Annual Summer Workshop is taking place July 6-12, 2013 on the Antioch University Midwest campus in Yellow Springs.
Information about the partnership with the Rural Development Leadership Network for Advanced Research will be updated soon.
A grant of $30,000 from PNC Foundation made possible the funding of three scholarships per year for three years in Antioch University Midwest’s Bachelor of Arts in Early Childhood Education program. In addition to the scholarship support the grant also provides programmatic support.
Through this partnership, Antioch University Midwest and PNC will work together to better the lives of young people ages birth – five by providing qualified, educated teachers. An important part of this partnership will be the development of relationships with child care centers that are in need of qualified teachers.
The PNC BAECE Scholarship grant was made in support of PNC’s Grow Up Great, a 10-year, $100 million initiative to enhance early childhood education and school readiness.
Antioch University Midwest is pleased to host the Yellow Springs Arts Council (YSAC) Permanent Collection in the hallways of the campus at 900 Dayton Street in Yellow Springs. We are proud to partner with YSAC to bring to the community this body of art, representing the artistic heritage of Yellow Springs. AUM also proudly sponsors community arts and cultural programs, such as the Yellow Springs Experience. “Through an inclusive practice, we (The Yellow Springs Arts Council) aim to reflect our wider community and promote positive attitudes to both the similarities and differences in each other.”
