Achieving the Promise of Community–Higher Education Partnerships: Community Partners Get Organized
Authored by the Community Partner Summit Group for the Handbook of Engaged Scholarship, published by Michigan State University in 2010.
Partnerships between communities and higher educational institutions as a strategy for social change are gaining recognition and momentum. Despite being formed with the best of intentions, however, authentic partnerships are very difficult to achieve. Although academic partners have extensively documented their experiences and lessons learned, the voices of community partners are largely missing. We believe that if true partnerships are to be achieved, community partners must harness their own experiences, lessons learned, and collective wisdom into a national, organized effort to address this issue.
