CCPH's Principles of Partnership and Social Justice
For nearly two decades, CCPH, our work, and that of our partners has bridged the chasm between communities and campuses across the country by supporting the development of scientific evidence that supports and upholds all those engaged in promoting health and well-being in communities. Far too many communities suffer from the crippling effects of diminished economic and social opportunities, making it difficult to lead productive and healthy lives. Our Principles of Partnership have served as a unifying framework that facilitates authentic partnerships between communities and campuses. Our commitment to social justice and health equity has grounded our work seeking to bring positive social change. The current climate in our nation cries out for authentic partnerships and demands that we respond to the current landscape of social injustice.
