Defining and Sustaining Community Partnerships
Thursday, November 12th, 2020
3 - 4 pm, virtual meeting via Zoom

 

Community engagement best practices encourage the development of sustained, long-term relationships and partnerships between campus and community partners. However, how do faculty and students create these long-term relationships when service-learning classes last only one semester, and faculty research can shift with grant funding? This workshop will explore how we define “community” within community engagement and will provide training and tips on how to build sustainable partnerships.
