This Week's Topic

Dr. Larry Allen, Dean of Clemson University’s College of Health, Education, and Human Development, provides an overview of community-based education, stressing shared ownership of the education and success of our young people across all sectors of every community. This framework will provide you with a new way of looking at education—which does not stop, nor should it stop, when students leave the school building each day.

  1. Learn what community-based education is.
  2. Find out how you can improve your community’s collaborative efforts in education.
