  • As your relationships grows, expectations and training can be catered to truly working towards building the capacity of the partner


  • Previously discussed, community partnership model.
    Now going into more detail of how we can take our partnerships to the next level.
    How we can move a relationship from the occasional volunteer or regular volunteer to site based teams, collaborative problem solving


























  • Issue based: really help focus your teams, teams could have meetings regarding the issue. This higher level engagement with the issue area, helps them be able to perform higher level activities as they have a better understanding of the core issue.

    Faculty members, campus staff and community partners could also take a role in mentoring issue based/site based team. The Staff at the homeless shelter could have a lot of knowledge to share with your housing team. An agency that deals with immigration has a lot of practical knowledge behind the theory of immigration law.

    Faculty members and campus staff could also sit on agency boards, etc.
    .
    Put both the community partner and issue on this workchart. Put issue in paratheses

    • 72. Suggestions: 2nd — Promote Policies & Practices • Find ways to engage senior administrators in dialogue • Support campuses across state in earning recognition via Carnegie Classification, President's Honor Roll, Newsweek rating, & other venues • Launch the annual VA Engage Awards Program to recognize achievements within your network by students, staff, faculty, community partners, funders, & elected leaders www.bonner.org
