Northwestern/ETHS Partnership

Enhancing the education experience


Dave Davis, Executive Director of Neighborhood and Community Relations

“I’m fortunate to have inherited an increasingly harmonious town-gown relationship given the nature of my role. Our mutually beneficial partnership with ETHS is one of the primary catalysts behind transforming this important connection."

what we do

Our work

The Partnership Office connects important resources to enhance the educational experience of students at both Northwestern and Evanston Township High School. The ideas for partnerships bubble up from the people on the ground: students, parents, staff, administration, teachers, and faculty.

The Partnership Office grows connections and collaborations as synergistically, scaleable and sustainable as possible. To date, over 100 partnerships and collaborative ventures are supported through this work, ranging from a research practice partnership called the Northwestern Evanston Education Research Alliance to an after-school STEM opportunity for middle school girls called Digital Divas.
