CAP 2.0 - Quality of Partnerships
the 2017-2018 academic year, the Community Action Plan (CAP) team focused on
of Partnerships. Executive leadership
across campus identified 15 university-community partnerships that varied in
length, focus, depth, and complexity. Representatives
from these 15 partnerships were identified to serve as the CAP 2.0 team.
CAP 2.0 team spent five months exploring these 15 partnerships in detail. All partnerships were self-assessed using the Community as Object to Community-Engaged Continuum. Strengths, weaknesses, impacts, and the sustainability
of each partnership were explored. Discussions
ranged from aligning and/or adapting best practices to identifying common
challenges and possible solutions in developing, supporting, and sustaining
transformative partnerships. These
conversations were conducted while honoring the unique culture of our
communities and institution.
work of the CAP 2.0 team resulted in a culminating Partnership Celebration as a
part of the Center for Community-Based Learning’s Annual Community Engagement Summit on February 2, 2018.
