The call for proposals for Community-Campus Partnerships for Health's
11th Conference "Creating the Future We Want to Be: Transformation
Through Partnerships," April 29-May 2, 2009 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin is
now available under "coming up" at www.ccph.info. The proposal deadline
is October 10, 2008.
Community-Campus Partnerships for Health (CCPH) promotes health (broadly
defined) through partnerships between communities and higher educational
institutions, including through service-learning and community-based
participatory research. Learn more about CCPH at www.ccph.info
Be sure to mark your calendars for April 29-May 2, 2009 and plan now to
join hundreds of your colleagues for 4 days of skill-building,
networking and agenda-setting!
Proposals for pre-conference workshops, story sessions, skill-building
workshops, film screening and discussion session, and posters are sought
that relate to one or more of these sub-themes (see the complete call
for proposals for specific examples).
(1) Journeys of Transformation - proposals that demonstrate the
transformational power of community-campus partnerships.
(2) Sustaining partnerships and the outcomes they achieve - proposals
that demonstrate how partnerships and the outcomes they achieve can be
sustained over time.
(3) Building capacity - proposals that demonstrate strategies for
building capacity among all partners involved in a partnership.
(4) Community-campus partnerships as a global movement - proposals that
demonstrate community-campus partnerships from across the globe. We are
especially interested in sessions that are proposed and sponsored by
international networks of these partnerships.
(5) Innovative and promising partnership practices - proposals that
demonstrate innovative and promising practices in partnerships.
(6) Community-based participatory research as a tool for social justice
- proposals that demonstrate community-based participatory research
(CBPR) as a tool for social justice. We welcome proposals that use a
different term to describe work that has similar meaning (e.g., action
research, empowerment research, community owned and managed research).
(7) Interprofessional, interdisciplinary and/or intersectoral
collaborations - proposals that demonstrate these sorts of collaborations.
(8) Youth and student leadership - proposals that demonstrate the
leadership roles played by youth and students in community-campus
