[Source: Arizona State University] — The ASU Office of University Initiatives is interested in getting feedback on how the university can establish mutually beneficial relationships with community-based organizations from large entities like Teach for America to schools and small non-profit organizations. More specifically, they want to make sure that the university develops tools that local organizations will actually use and will support your work.
To provide some context, they are coordinating a series of spring dialogues to promote social embeddedness through community-university partnerships. The goal of these conversations is to connect individuals internal and external to ASU and to provide tools to foster enhanced community-university partnerships. Leading up to the dialogues, ASU will conduct focus groups with students, faculty, and community members on each campus.
The downtown Phoenix session is Thursday, January 21, 2010, 2-3:30 p.m., Cronkite Building, Room 122, ASU at the Downtown Phoenix campus. To attend, please RSVP via e-mail to Janelle Elizares Knapp.
