“Reciprocal Partnerships: Transforming Higher Education and Community for the Future”
May 18 & 19, 2009; Portland, Oregon
Registration: $200

CALL for Proposals and REGISTRATION:
Proposals due: March 9, 2009

Developing and sustaining reciprocal partnerships is the basis for effective campus-community engagement. Yet, despite the W.K. Kellogg Foundation’s (and others’) national call to focus on partnerships a decade ago, this foundational work remains elusive for many campuses and communities. Join community and campus practitioners and scholars to deeply explore engaged teaching, research and service partnerships – their proven mechanisms and strategies for success, persistent challenges, and the scholarship of partnerships.

Interactive work and plenary sessions feature:
– HARRY BOYTE, Co-director, Center for Democracy and Citizenship, University of Minnesota
– NADINNE CRUZ, former director of the Haas Center, Stanford University
– AMY DRISCOLL, Consulting Scholar, Carnegie Foundation for Teaching and Learning
– President/Community Partner Panel
– YOU!

HOST/SPONSOR: Portland State University
– Association of American Colleges & Universities (AAC&U)

– Campus Compact (National & Oregon Campus Compact)
