Conference Tracks

Faculty/Staff - What can we as educators do to strengthen partnerships? What are the hallmarks of a successful partnership?  What are best practices to ensure strong, enduring partnerships?

Students – How do students benefit from working with community partners? What type of training do our institutions offer to students embarking on engagement work? How do student experiences shape partnerships?

Community Partners – Are community partners viewed as co-educators? What is the impact of providing awards/recognition for community partners supporting university engagement? Is there a feedback loop? What are we doing to make sure our students are prepared for work in community agencies?
