Community Partner Proposal Form

Are you a community organization interested in connecting with CC faculty and courses? Do you have a problem or issue that college students and faculty could help with through research or academic expertise? Would you benefit from additional partners in problem-solving, or collaborators on a creative project? If so, you've landed on the right page!

You're invited to participate in the Publicly Engaged, Actionable Knowledge (PEAK) Project!  This project seeks to bridge campus knowledge and community impact through connecting CC educators, students, and partners to co-create engaged courses and research projects. Read more about the PEAK project here.
