    This brochure highlights the many connections that have been developed between the College of Arts and Humanities at the University of Maryland and surrounding schools and communities. These collaborative programs provide area school children, their teachers, and local community members with initiatives that exemplify the wide variety of creative opportunities available to promote learning, teaching, and community building.

    The results of these joint ventures are mutually beneficial and multidimensional. The College's outreach programs are designed to increase the educational experience of all participating elementary and secondary-level students and to enhance their access to and success in college. The programs also provide opportunities for educators--- elementary, secondary, and collegiate--- to engage in collaborative study and to reflect upon and learn from their shared experiences. In fostering these educational opportunities, the College is able to bring the important subject matters of the arts and humanities to the community at large.

    The following pages present an extensive inventory of successful programs (past and current) as well as promising new ventures.

    I am confident that the School-University-Community Connections brochure will be useful as a resource guide and aid in promoting future connections and creating sustainable programs.

    James F. Harris, Dean
