Internet2’s Community Anchor Program Partners with KINBER
Internet2’s Community Anchor Program (CAP) has contracted with the Keystone Initiative for Network-Based Education and Research (KINBER), the statewide research, education, and community network in Pennsylvania, to help advance CAP’s mission and assist with its strategic vision.
CAP works with regional and local research and education networks across the country to connect the diverse range of community anchor institutions to advanced broadband capabilities. Community anchor institutions include K-12 schools, public libraries, colleges and universities, health care institutions, museums, and other cultural and performing arts organizations.
"KINBER is pleased to be part of the CAP strategy and vision process helping Internet2 develop and advance new opportunities for these critical stakeholders."
Exploring strategic partnerships
Together, CAP and KINBER will identify key priority areas for CAP, explore strategic partnerships, and help identify initiatives for consideration by the entire CAP community.
"CAP’s partnership with KINBER will expand broadband enabled opportunities and resources for our regional network partners and K-12 schools, libraries, and cultural institutions,” said Stephanie Stenberg, Director of CAP.
Jennifer Oxenford, Director of Community Engagement at KINBER, will work closely with Stenberg to help formulate projects and objectives.
“KINBER is pleased to be part of the CAP strategy and vision process helping Internet2 develop and advance new opportunities for these critical stakeholders,” Oxenford said. “Through Stephanie’s leadership and collaboration with the regional and national community, we are eager to enter into the next phase of CAP and bring new opportunities, resources, and collaborations to the over 100,000+ community anchor stakeholders that represent CAP."
