Dear Service-Learning Colleagues,

Community-Campus Partnerships for Health (CCPH) is seeking new board members who will begin three-year terms in May 2004. Applications are due January 9, 2004. All the details can be accessed through the “what’s new” column on our home page at

CCPH promotes health through partnerships between communities and higher educational institutions. Through these partnerships, we seek to eliminate health disparities and increase the diversity and community-responsiveness of the health workforce. We are searching for individuals from a wide variety of backgrounds, with a broad range of experience and expertise, who are committed to furthering our mission as a member of our board of directors. We are especially interested in individuals with a passion for community-campus partnerships, ties to multiple networks and organizations, and the time and ability to contribute to a working board.

Our board composition reflects the diverse constituencies we serve, and currently includes community leaders, academic administrators, nonprofit agency leaders, faculty and students from urban and rural settings. Some are directly involved in health care or health professions education, and some are not. However, board members are not chosen for nor are they expected to represent a particular category, but rather to bring a broad perspective to the board’s deliberations. Brief board member biographies are posted on our website.

CCPH’s board development committee will review all applications. A select group of applicants will be interviewed by phone in February 2004 and decisions will be made in March 2004.

If you have any questions about any aspect of the board or CCPH, please let me know.
