Each year, it recognizes exemplary partnerships between communities and academic institutions that are striving to achieve the systems and policy changes needed to overcome the root causes of health, social, environmental and economic inequalities. Partnerships need not be members of CCPH to apply. Partnerships involving one or more community partners and one or more academic partners are eligible to apply for the award. Submission Deadline is February 16, 2015
The Conference on Community Writing will be held in Boulder, CO next October 16-17, 2015. The conference theme, Building Engaged Infrastructure, challenges attendees to build ethical and durable community-university partnerships through teaching, research, and community writing, simultaneously challenging faculty who do community-engaged work to find support within university departments. The theme also explores how to build institutional support for departments themselves as they become more committed to community-engaged instruction and scholarship across the curriculum. Building that infrastructure of support, resources, and relationships is essential if the work is to be sustainable. Updated Submission Deadline is February 2, 2015
