CEPS: Nurturing Community During Times of Upheaval: A Case Study of Community-University Collaborative Events During COVID-19

    Tuesday, March 30, 2021 at 10:00 AM until 11:15 AMUS Eastern Daylight Time

    Tuesday, March 30, 2021 - 10:00am

    This Engaged Learning Forum will explore theory and best practices around community-university partnerships in times of crisis. The session will focus on identifying and responding to a variety of types of crises, comparing the slow-moving, chronic crises that community-university partnerships often address and faster-moving crises such as the COVID-19 pandemic. As part of a local case study, the ELF will also explore the creation, design, and impact of a series of specially-designed community-centered, collaborative conversations that were part of the Engaged Learning Forum Summer Series from May to July 2020. These events and the existing literature suggest a six step crisis identification and response model that can be used in future crises. This will be an interactive discussion that will invite participants to evaluate recent responses to COVID-19 and begin to draft organizational response plans.
