The purpose of the study was to document the planning, process, and outcomes resulting from a partnership between two private, faith-based institutions a kindergarten through fifth grade (K-5) school and a university. A team of five university professors formed a partnership with the K-5 school in February 2003. The university faculty continues to mentor the elementary school teachers in order to improve curriculum and instruction and to secure regional accreditation for the school. The results reveal how this reciprocal relationship not only benefits the participating elementary school, but also offers an opportunity for university faculty to engage in collaborative scholarship and community service learning activities.
