ABOUT PARTNERS IN EDUCATION

WHO WE ARE

Founded in 1983, Partners In Education remains the longest continually-operated program of the Tulsa Regional Chamber. By establishing partnerships between businesses, organizations and schools around measurable, strategic outcomes, Partners In Education has played a vital role in our community for over 30 years.

The success of the program is in its name: our partner businesses, non-profits and faith groups have created a model of effective collaboration in support of students and teachers. From working to close the achievement gap for low-income students, helping to reduce drop-out rates and assisting educators in improving reading proficiency, community partners help assure that students are prepared for post-secondary education or entrance into the workplace.
