Focus Areas

Community-Campus Partnerships for Health (CCPH) works to

  • Leverage knowledge, wisdom and experience found in communities and in academic institutions to solve pressing health, social, environmental and economic challenges;
  • Ensure that community-driven social change is central to the work of community-institutional partnerships; and
  • Build the capacity of communities and academic institutions to engage each other in partnerships that balance power, share resources, and work towards systems change.

To achieve these goals, we mobilize knowledge, provide training and technical assistance, conduct research, build coalitions and advocate for supportive policies in each of these areas:

  1. Community-Based Participatory Research
  2. Community-Engaged Scholarship
  3. Community-Institutional Partnerships
  4. Service-Learning
  5. Research Ethics
  6. Anchor Institutions
