C2UExpo 2017 is committed to providing space to discuss, analyze and synthesize partnerships that address real social and environmental challenges faced by Canada, as we celebrate our 150th birthday.
We must also address the challenges. Do these efforts lead to the betterment of the common good? How do we know when it is so? What strategies work well? When do partnerships stall?
Community-campus partnerships come about and are sustained in a variety of ways; the work encompasses a great range of participants, topics, and interests. Communities and campuses are engaged in everything from ensuring safe delivery of newborns to providing end of life care, and everything in between. And while engaging in community-campus partnerships is important from a process perspective, it is also important that they have an impact on solving and helping us to critically think about the problems that we all face today and in the future.
