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
