Develop stronger community-campus partnerships that put community first

CFICE logo with full name spelled out: Community First: Impacts of Community EngagementCommunity First: Impacts of Community Engagement (CFICE) provides tools and research on community-first approaches to partnership work that builds healthier, more just and sustainable communities. For CFICE, being community-first means engaging in equitable partnerships to co-create knowledge and action plans for addressing pressing community issues.

Through community-driven projects, CFICE collaborators test community-first approaches to community-campus engagement (CCE) to study how community and campus players work together to create meaningful sector-specific change. This research has generated a wealth of community-first stories and resources that CCE practitioners can use to enhance the impact of their CCE work.
