Implementation of Community Partnerships

Please share a summary of your work with community partners, highlighting your work regarding  (no more than one page text needed):

  •  Arrangement and management of community partnerships and placements (orientation, site visits, meetings, strategic planning)
  •  How partners were engaged as co-educators, including academic linkages, courses, and student advising
  • Partnerships managed through site-based or issue-oriented teams, as well as other issue-based organizing undertaken

This year saw our community partnerships grow stronger through new programming and academic linkages. Sadly, we lost a long time community partner in Mcleansville Prison which became a casualty of state budget cuts. Immigration reform emerged as a primary issue focus and allowed an opportunity to create new partnerships in our community and beyond.
