Description: It is sometimes remarked that the modern university is a collection of independent departments united by a common physical plant. The Physics Department at Seattle Pacific University views this state of affairs as an unfortunate symptom of specialization rather than a desired feature of academic life. An authentic collaboration between a university's Physics Department and School or College of Education, enriched through close ties with partner school districts, can align all major forces that feed (or starve) the professional trajectory of a science teacher. Putting together and sustaining such collaboration is inevitably time-consuming. Yet, the rewards for the Physics Department can be great as can be the positive impact on the continuum of science teacher preparation and enhancement. This article outlines two facets of collaboration at Seattle Pacific University-among faculty (physics and education) and among students (physics majors, minors, non-majors, and preservice teachers). Due to lack of space, this article does not address a third important area of collaboration, namely among teaching professionals (preservice and inservice teachers, school administrators, and university faculty (including resident master teachers)).
