Pathways to Collaboration: A Knowledge-Building Workgroup
Due date for Letters of Intent from community partnerships: May 9, 2003

The Pathways to Collaboration workgroup, funded by the W. K. Kellogg Foundation, will give up to 12 community partnerships from across the United States a unique opportunity to explore exactly what makes a collaborative problem-solving process successful. They are seeking Letters of Intent from partnerships that have a record of success in using collaboration to address problems (in any area) that are important to people in their community, a spirit of curiosity about what made those successes possible, and an interest in participating in a rigorous and provocative learning experience.

Successful applicants will receive $50,000 per year for three years to enable the entire partnership to participate in the workgroup experience. Working with other partnerships and a group of people with valuable technical skills, participating partnerships will: (1) understand and document what they are doing well and learn how to teach those skills to others; (2) go beyond their current achievements by learning from partnerships whose strengths are complementary to their own; and (3) create new knowledge and tools that will help partnerships everywhere become more effective in engaging many different kinds of people and organizations in collaborative problem solving.

The workgroup is being organized by the Center for the Advancement of Collaborative Strategies in Health at The New York Academy of Medicine, a member of Community-Campus Partnerships for Health. For more information, including the Community Partnership Application Guide, visit or contact the Center at or (212) 822-7250.
