     4th - 7th graders - Learning Track

School chooses one day

    8th - College Age - Mentoring Track








Welcome to Understanding U!  This program offers all of the understanding activities that you and your students enjoyed in previous programs plus the addition of a new curriculum and understanding activities.  This year's event is FREE to your school and includes all materials and lunch.


Understanding U is an entertaining, interactive, and educational way for students to learn about each other...from each other!  Students attending our "University" of understanding will join friends from throughout the area with the same goals... to gain understanding and promote acceptance of those who are different than themselves.



Students will spend the day making their way throughout our "University" experiencing a freedom to learn from a variety of situations and circumstances.  From the adaptive sports arena to our medical training center and school of international relations, students will have an opportunity to experience differences, focus on issues they deal with on a daily basis, and work together to develop solutions that our society can implement.  The hands-on interactive concept engages students to be active throughout the day while learning and questioning without intimidation.


Older students in the mentor track will have an opportunity to facilitate sessions and work directly with younger students, "mentoring" their understanding and some acceptance activities.


To register your students for Understanding U, please download the school registration form here and return it to us no later than November 15, 2007.  Space is limited, and schools will be accepted on a first come/first served basis.  Once we receive your school registration form, we will send you additional materials to begin your journey to Understanding U.  If you have any questions, you can contact us at info@understandingu.org or by phone at 330-703-1183.


Understanding U is presented in part by the Dane Foundation; promoting hope, encouragement, and understanding.
