Precollegiate programs at IU
As director of the Office of Community and School Partnerships at Indiana University, Mary Tourner fosters partnerships across communities. "I serve as a liaison from the university to the community statewide, connect schools to the university and connect students with postsecondary educational opportunities," Tourner said. To achieve these ambitious goals, Tourner and her staff visit Indiana schools throughout the year, encouraging students to plan ahead for higher education and parents to play an active role in the process. Tourner also relies on help from current IU students, including many students who have graduated from CSP programs. The CSP programs at IU are designed to help enhance the process of college preparation that precedes a successful college experience. Tourner said, "We want to support them, retain them and graduate them. Not many other schools can say the same thing."
