Binghamton University Community Schools

What Are Community Schools?

Community Schools build bridges between community resources, placing the school at the core of the community, to support youth, families and neighborhoods within and beyond the doors of the classroom. Through integrating community resources, community schools combat intergenerational poverty and create a more equitable school environment leading to increased student success and stronger communities.

To advance equity and opportunities through collaborative partnerships.

Making an impact

Binghamton University Community Schools recently received $9.3 million in federal funding to train school-based mental health professionals. This will allow us to put more social work students in local schools to boost mental health services.

Senator Gillibrand supports Community Schools

Binghamton University President Harvey Stenger and CCPA Dean Laura Bronstein were joined by U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand at the University Downtown Center to show support for the Full-Service Community School Expansion Act of 2021.

The University-Assisted Community School (UACS) partners universities alongside community resources and the school system focusing on academics, social support and civic engagement.
