How would you know an authentic, equitable & transformative partnership if you saw one? Answer this question and several others in an online conversation with CCPH. Our 13th international conference is quickly approaching and we've created this space for CCPH members and conference participants to reflect on issues and questions related to community-campus partnerships. Join the conversation!
The CCPH 13th International Conference: Whether you are directly involved in community-based participatory research, service-learning or multi-sector coalitions - or are working to ensure the conditions are in place for such partnerships to thrive and have impact - the conference is designed to challenge and inspire you! Regardless of the social justice issue you are passionate about - health equity, education, environmental justice, food security, sustainability, indigenous rights and so forth - together we will explore how partnerships can transform our communities and institutions.
Join us April 30 - May 3, 2014 in Chicago for 4 days of skill-building, networking and agenda-setting! Register by April 23.
