  • Academic Partnerships

    Gannon University recognizes that many school districts in Pennsylvania are developing and delivering staff development programs to their professional educators that are rigorous, based upon current best practices of educational pedagogy and worthy of graduate level credit. Under the Academic Partnership Program, the University will join and partner with IUs and school districts to recognize those staff development programs that meet the University and PDE standards for graduate level work. This recognition will come in two ways:  

    1. Gannon University will grant adjunct status to the District’s master’s level content experts, who will teach the Academic Partnership Courses or will provide University instructors.  
    2. Gannon University will grant graduate level credit (3 credits) for the approved courses.  

    Gannon offers these courses at a discounted tuition rate.   These classes are Act 48 and/or 45 approved.
