How We Began

The current Partners for Learning is the product of a combination of two projects from Leadership classes taught by Tony Brown. Partners for Literacy, started by Angela Jarmon in the Fall of 2005, was a tutoring program where Duke students tutored non-English speaking Duke employees in English. Partners in Learning, started by Shian-Ling Keng and Jenny Terrell in the Spring of 2006, was initally a literacy tutoring program where Duke students tutored interested Duke employees. Both programs focused on building relationships between Duke students and employees. In the Summer of 2006, the two programs merged to form the current Partners for Learning. Lucy Haagan is our faculty advisor and coordinator.
