The Binghamton University Liberty Partnerships Program (BU/LPP) is a collaboration between the college, schools and community agencies that provides support services for 330 students each year in cooperation with the Binghamton, Windsor, Susquehanna Valley, Owego Apalachin, and Union-Endicott central school districts. The program develops effective strategies and activities that have laid the groundwork for the Academic Interventions Services (AIS) these districts offer as mandated by the commissioner of education. To accomplish this, BU/LPP places full-time, dedicated staff members in the participating school districts to work directly with at-risk youth.
In addition to the full-time staff, Binghamton University graduate and undergraduate students serve as tutors and mentors and many more complete internships and practicums in the BU/LPP to fulfill degree requirements, volunteering thousands of hours of community service each semester.
