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:
- Building relationship-driven partnerships where power and resources are shared
- Relying on community partners’ knowledge and understanding of local issues to determine the best methods for addressing community needs
- 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.
