Odyssey Partnerships and Initiatives with Major Universities & Institutions

Odyssey has collaborated with the Department of Human Development & Family Studies (HDFS) at the University of Delaware in a partnership that will unite major universities and institutions from Greece and the USA.

Greek Scholars in Residence

HDFS had the privilege of hosting Dr. Eugenia Arvanitis and Dr. Pandelis Kiprianos,scholars from the University of Patras, pictured on the left with Odyssey Charter School Board President, Dimitri Dandolos, for a week in April.They were guest presenters at our two global research events and they participated in many other activities with faculty, students and staff on campus.

It was a great opportunity to learn about their areas of expertise as well as to gain more knowledge about the programs at the University of Patras, further strengthening our partnership.

 

 

Global Research Events

In April, a Global Research Series event was held featuring visiting scholars from Greece and a Public Forum event which also included Dr. Stefanos Gialamas, President of the American Community School in Athens, and UD discussants Dr. Jason Hustedt, and Dr. Matthew Weinert.The forum was held to discuss the plight of refugee children in Greece, the significance and implications of the refugee crisis for the U.S. and suggestions on how these complex problems can be addressed.

Faculty, students, staff and many members of the outside community attended the events.

Visiting Greek ECE Student

Ariadni Kouzeli, pictured left with Lab Preschool staff and sledding below, is a sophomore at the University of Patras in Greece majoring in Early Chlldhood Education. Ariadni received the opportunity to come to the University of Delaware as a visiting student in the HDFS Department. Ariadni spent three weeks observing and participating in events at the UD Laboratory Preschool and in local public and private schools, including the Odyssey Charter School of DE, a Greek language immersion school.

According to Ariadni, "It was an amazing experience to gain a lot of knowledge, not only in theory, but on a practical level." Our faculty, staff, and students truly enjoyed getting to know Ariadni, showing her area sites and learning about how schools work in Greece. We wish her all the best with her continuing studies and hope for future collaborations through our partnership with the University of Patras.
