Deep Collaboration Between Campus and Community, Visually Depicted

At the USU Summer meeting, our speakers took a microscope to university-city partnerships and we used a graphic recorder to document their insights and lessons learned. Take a look at the results from three panels. It is an exciting way to share knowledge.

Our Vision it:  Strategies for Building Health Communities in the City, in the Neighborhood and across Campus looked across the types of university-city partnerships, from health, to safety to education to see what makes them tick.  What binds them all together?  Bold thinking, rich and inclusive conversations, commitment to the well-being of the community, coordination across campus, using the research and data capabilities of the university and, for the university, integrating into the very fabric of the city. Our gratitude to our facilitator, Robert Jones, President, University at Albany, and three speakers Ed Lambert, Vice Chancellor for Government Relations and Public Affairs, University of Massachusetts, Boston, Barbara Tobias, Vice Chair, Department of Family and Community Medicine, University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, Medical Director, Health Collaborative, and Lynnette Zelezny, Provost, California State University, Fresno and Chair of our TPG Project’s Building Strong Community Partnerships Working Group for their insights.

Thanks to Jo, our graphic recorder, at for making these wonderful visions.

What do you think?  Did I miss a key insight. What do you take away from these visuals?
