Building Community Partnerships

Our goal is to work with community organizations to help you fulfill your short- and long-term missions while encouraging deep student learning about the kind of work you do. Toward that end, we believe in:

  1. Building relationship-driven partnerships where power and resources are shared
  2. Relying on community partners’ knowledge and understanding of local issues to determine the best methods for addressing community needs
  3. Creating projects that reciprocally benefit community partners and Trinity students and faculty

For more specifics, see the “Principles of Good Community Campus Partnerships” developed by Community-Campus Partnerships for Health, which we draw on in our approach to building and sustaining partnerships.
