We develop strong community-campus partnerships by putting community FIRST.

Community First: Impacts of Community Engagement (CFICE) is a research project that studies how community and campus players work together to positively impact their 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 participants test community first approaches to community-campus engagement (CCE). These collaborative approaches build healthier, more democratic and longer-lasting community-campus relationships.

Our research has generated a wealth of community-first stories and resources that you can use to make your CCE work more effective. Learn how by checking out our tools and research or contacting us for more information.
