Community Partner Peer Mentoring & Advocacy

2006 Summit

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. While academic partners have extensively documented their experiences and lessons learned, the voices of community partners are often absent. 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.

Toward that end, in April 2006, CCPH convened community partners with years of experience in community-higher education partnerships for a Community Partner Summit held at the Wingspread Conference Center in Racine, WI. In December 2011, CCPH and the Center for Community Health Education Research and Service co-sponsored Achieving the Promise of Community-Engaged Health Disparities Research: A National Community Partner Forum in Boston, MA. In March 2012, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, CCPH and others co-sponsored a Regional Community Partner Forum in New York City.

NEW Join us for the 2nd National Community Partner Forum on Community-Engaged Health Disparities Research, Dec. 5-7, 2012 in Washington DC!

Join the Community Partner Listserv!

We invite community members, community partners and community-academic liaisons who are involved or interested in community-higher education partnerships to join the Community Partner Listserv (electronic discussion group). The listserv was established to help build the capacity of community partners through information-sharing, collaborative problem-solving and advocacy. When you join, be sure to introduce yourself and your involvement or interest in community-higher education partnerships.
