Portland State University's Second International Institute on Partnerships: From Reciprocity to Collective Transformation: Achieving the Potential of Community-Campus Partnerships, will convene an international group of faculty, students, community partners, and administrators who are similarly interested in advancing the role of community-higher education partnerships in society. The Institute program is directed to strengthening the capacity of both community and higher education constituents for participation in transformative partnerships. The program is organized to empower attending participants to extend and enhance the foundations of higher education partnerships with contemporary understandings, research, and practices within a supportive national and international network.
Join community partners, faculty, administrators, and students interested in deepening their understandings and practices of community-higher education partnerships. Through a blend of presentations from the field, plenaries and working sessions, we will explore strategies to address persistent challenges, analyze promising practices, and examine research to advance the study of partnerships.
