Partners In Education

About PIE

Partners in Education (PIE) is a coalition of academic and community leaders dedicated to advocating for quality education and educational development at Cal Poly Pomona and surrounding communities.

Each year, PIE provides fellowships of up to $5,000 each to support students during their clinical practice experience, a very important component of the credential program. Since 2006, the group has awarded over 250 fellowships to teacher candidates.

PIE has supported various projects including: 

• A partnership between the Pomona Public Library and the University’s Service Learning Center for a Homework Center at the library for local K-12 students. 
• Sponsorship of the Department of Education Credential Celebration.
• Formation of the Educational Alumni Group to target teacher credential alumni and host professional development workshops for K-12 educators.
• Sponsor a Future Teacher program, which supports teacher candidates. 

Through continued partnership with community and academic partners, PIE looks forward to continuing the advancement of education in Southern California.
