COVID-19 and Community-Campus Partnerships

Community Campus Engage Canada is offering varied supports for community-campus engagement (CCE) practitioners, members of community organizations, academics, and other participants in community-campus partnerships to navigate this challenging period.

In April, CCEC hosted a series of informal ‘virtual coffee sessions’ to connect participants around the question, How do we ‘do’ community-campus engagement in the context of COVID-19? We also sent out a survey around this theme. From the sessions and survey we have learned a lot about varied stresses and strategies among participants in community-campus partnerships across Canada related to the current crisis. We hope to learn more during future gatherings.

These pages will be updated regularly as our coffee sessions continue and as we learn more:
