Community Partnerships

Princeton Academy of Art is eager to partner with institutions, organizations and individuals that believe creativity to be a catalyst for innovation and societal progress.

Community partnerships serve to strengthen and transform all involved toward a shared vision.

Through a shared vision, partnerships better serve both student bodies and communities offering learning opportunities with an emphasis on humanism and its benefits in todays society.

Collaboration between fine art, the humanities, sciences, engineering, performing arts and more opens the door to invention and a reimagining of the way we explore our designated fields.

 

 

The Children Heritage Foundation (tCHF) is a 501 c3 non-profit organization dedicated to the education and development of Haiti youth.

tCHF’s goal is to help enhance the lives of the young people in Haiti by providing access to education…not charity.

Since inception, tCHF has supported educational activities in Porte-au-Prince and Les Cayes at both the elementary school and college levels.

Princeton Academy of Art works in collaboration with tCHF to provide volunteer artistic services that aid in their fundraising campaigns.

 

Princeton Academy of Art has partnered with Dr. Breithaupt to provide cross-informational programming for both his patients and our students.

The office of Tom Breithaupt, D.M.D proudly serves patients in the Princeton, New Jersey area and neighboring towns. Regular checkups and cleanings, as well as cosmetic and reconstructive dentistry. This includes root canal therapy, bleaching, implant dentistry, porcelain fillings and complete and partial removable dentures.

Students study from intricate models made in the office of Dr. Breithaupt to better understand the human skull, and more specifically the teeth. Students interested in medical illustration are invited to shadow Dr. Breithaupt for select procedures when available to study bone structure, tools and methodology in-person.

Academic Community Impact Program

Thomas Edison State University’s new Academic Community Impact Program is an innovative project-based initiative that bridges the gap between online education and real-life workplace experience while affording adult students with the opportunity to complete a hands-on project that directly meets the vital needs of community-based nonprofit organizations.

Thanks to generous funding from a Provident Bank Foundation Signature Grant, the University will work with nonprofits to develop a needs assessment and target unique projects that organizations need help with. These projects can range from website redesigns, strategic outreach enhancements, underserved population research, and much more. At the end of each project, participating nonprofits will have fulfilled an important strategic and critical need.

The adult learners of Thomas Edison State University will be working with participating nonprofits and engaging in these projects directly with a mentor who will provide the academic expertise to successfully guide students through their projects. Following the successful completion of their projects, students will have a portfolio and a tangible project that they can share with future employers and use as a tool for their career growth.

Thomas Edison State University’s new Academic Community Impact Program will greatly strengthen the bonds that tie communities, people, nonprofit organizations, and institutions of higher education together.

If you are interested in becoming a participating student or community partner in the program, contact Daniel Fidalgo Tomé, EdD, Community Engagement program manager, by emailing aci@tesu.edu or call 609-984-1120, ext. 2315.
