Partnerships that Make a Difference: Center for Children’s and Young Adult Literature

As part of the university’s successful Carnegie Community Engagement Classification application process, the Office of Research and Engagement has compiled a list of fifty of UT’s best community-campus partnerships. The university will be celebrating its status as an engaged institution throughout the coming year by featuring these individual examples in articles that highlight their unique contribution to the community. This week’s partnership spotlight is on the Center for Children’s and Young Adult Literature.

Center for Children’s and Young Adult Literature

Tennessee’s only Center for Children’s and Young Adult Literature promotes the use of literature in the education and lives of children and young adults by providing workshops for teachers and librarians, and sponsoring talks by authors and illustrators which are open to the public. Publishers of children’s and young adult books place review copies of  recently published books in the Center, where they are available for study within the Center by librarians, students, teachers, and the public. This program started in 1999 and engages approximately 10 UT faculty members and 150 students each year.
