Keystone Partners

NACEP is excited to announce our 2023 Keystone Partners. Arches are one of the most iconic and enduring structures found in architecture. At each arch’s apex sits the keystone, creating lasting stability by artfully locking the other pieces into position and helping to share the load. NACEP created Keystone Partners to recognize organizations that play a similar role in connecting and supporting the field of concurrent and dual enrollment. Their work has had an important impact on our mission to advance quality college courses for high school students. Keystone Partners are organizations that help to connect the field, lighten the load, and improve our collective approach to the work. These are organizations eager to build relationships and expand their presence from NACEP events to year-round connections. “This program has been instrumental in connecting our members with resources and allies that can help make their jobs easier and more efficient, from solutions to money-saving opportunities, our Keystone Partners are here to help,” stated Miranda Rodriguez, NACEP Director of Communications and Member Services. It is an exciting time at NACEP and our Keystone Partners can help our members grow and evolve along with the field.”

There are seven Keystone Partners for 2023: Canusia, DualEnroll, Latinos in Action, Parchment, Pearson, Textbook Acquisition Services, and W.W. Norton.

Janet Van Pelt, CEO of DualEnroll, a longtime partner and presence at NACEP events, stated, “since NACEP’s 2012 National Conference in Seattle, DualEnroll has supported these events as a premium sponsor every time the opportunity was available. We’re delighted to have this opportunity to participate in a more holistic, strategic partnership and look forward to supporting the dual/concurrent enrollment community and NACEP for many years to come.” 

NACEP is thrilled to continue building the relationship between our Keystone Partners and our community. This initiative will take us into the next decade and showcases our mutual dedication to supporting the field and its practitioners.
