A Tool to Develop & Nurture Campus-Community Partnerships

Posted by Connecticut Campus Compact on November 27, 2018

The practice of campus-community partnerships has gained significant attention in recent years from numerous sectors including the Office of Housing and Urban Development and the National Taskforce on Civic Learning and Democratic Engagement. Thanks to the work of organizations like Campus Compact, Community-Campus Partnerships for Health (CCPH), the Clinical and Translational Science Award Consortium and others, we have a greater understanding of the principles and frameworks outlining how potential partners should enter into, sustain, assess and celebrate their partnerships

Connecticut Campus Compact (CTCC) convened statewide representation from our members’ partnerships as well as community advisory members for a series of meetings and online exchanges to consider ways to strengthen community-university partnerships. These professionals were selected because of their history with Connecticut communities and universities. A common objective emerged from these conversations. This was to produce a tool to guide the establishment and monitoring of campus-community partnerships.
