Community-Campus Partnerships

Definition

Creating healthier communities and overcoming complex societal problems require collaborative solutions which bring communities and institutions together as equal partners and build upon the assets, strengths and capacities of each. Community-campus partnerships involve communities and higher educational institutions as partners, and may address such areas as health professions education (i.e., through service-learning), health care delivery, research (i.e., through community-based participatory research), community service, community-wide health improvement (i.e., through Healthy Communities initiatives), and community/economic development.

As a strategy, community-campus partnerships can contribute to a number of significant outcomes, including:

  • Community-responsive, culturally competent health professionals
  • Diversity of the health professional workforce
  • Access to health care
  • Access to technology
  • Community development
  • Environmental justice
  • Economic development
  • Engaged campuses and citizens
