    • Coordinate quarterly partner breakfasts and meetings at BPL Learning Centers, where local community based organizations will be invited to learn about BPL’s Adult Learning programs and other offerings, ask questions and network among themselves.
    • Track activities and outreach statistics and help write reports for funders and other stakeholders on the impact of outreach activities on student recruitment, partnership building, and program visibility.
    • Participate in departmental as well as system wide meetings and trainings to share and learn about program developments, new initiatives, and institutional goals.
