The Netter Center for Community Partnerships will be co-hosting a webinar on Friday about how institutions of higher education support local schools.

Representatives from four universities will be speaking about their engagement with the local community during the webinar. Ira Harkavy, director of the Netter Center, will be one of the speakers.

The conference grew out of a themed issue of the Peabody Journal of Education titled “Higher Education’s Role in Public School Reform and Community Engagement.” Harkavy’s piece was the lead article in that edition of the journal.
