The conditions that supported the development of a highly successful collaborative partnership between a college literacy program and a nonprofit center for refugee children are discussed. This three year partnership produced three inquiry-based projects, grant opportunities and increased collaboration among graduate literacy students, center teachers, and staff in the areas of instruction, assessment and material collection. It is argued that these collaborations are necessary for institutions of higher learning in general and teacher preparation programs in particular.
