Community-Campus Partnerships for Health Award

The Community-Campus Partnerships for Health Award recognizes exemplary partnerships between communities and higher educational institutions that build on each other's strengths to improve higher education, civic engagement, and the overall health of communities.

The intent of the award is to highlight the power and potential of community-campus partnerships as a strategy for social justice. The award recognizes partnerships that are striving to achieve the systems and policy changes needed to overcome the root causes of health, social and economic inequalities.

Through the CCPH Award we seek to recognize community-campus partnerships that:
  • Others can aspire to.
  • Embody the CCPH principles.
  • Pursue multiple community-campus partnership strategies.
  • Involve a full range of partners.
  • Achieve significant outcomes that go beyond a process or a single event.

ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA: Partnerships involving one or more community partners and one or more higher education partners are eligible to apply for the award. By “higher education partner” we mean a community college, college, university or residency program (including affiliated administrators, faculty, staff and students) that contributes to the partnership. By “community partner” we mean an individual, organization or agency that contributes to the partnership and is not a higher education partner.
